Ignore bloodworms for pellet??

My little boy totally ignored my blood worms for pellets. And it is not the first time. I just want him to have some protein :(

That is not too uncommon. Freeze dried is not nearly as tasty as frozen. Plus freeze dried should not be your biggest form of protein. A good quality pellet will taste better and provide more useable protein than freeze dried. They are like french fries. Though apparently your boy doesn't like french fries! lol.

Pellets can be a little more nutritious for him then freeze dried. Pellets are typically the staple in most betta's diets. My guys hate freeze dried blood worms, so mine are collecting dust. Make sure you soak them in tank water prior to feeding, otherwise they can bloat them easily. Frozen foods are higher in protein over artificial such as pellets/flakes. Just keep an eye on the crude protein %.
