Doesn't like bloodworms?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if this has ever happened to any of you. My betta is in great shape, no health problems, but when I put bloodworms in the tank, he never touches them. He doesn't seem to like them...
He's has a BIG appetite for his pellets though, he practically jumps out of the water every time I feed him his pellets.

Has this ever happen to you? A betta who doesn't like bloodworms? Is there anything else that I can give as a little treat/supplement to his pellets?

What type of bloodworms are you feeding? If they are freeze-dried this is actually pretty common. They don't have the texture and flavor of the frozen or live ones. Kind of like stale candy. If they are frozen, then this would be the first I have seen of a non-sick fish not eating frozen bloodworms!

My butterfly male Ghengis doesn't like the freeze dried. He'll take them and spit them out and leave them :/ So I agree with Kytkattin, it is probably the type. Most bettas will not turn down a live (or frozen) food! Unless sick.

Only one of mine will eat freeze dried of anything, the others just poke at it and leave it be. When you do frozen, cut off just a bit of it and defrost the tiny bit in tank water and then use tweezers or tooth pick (if you don't want to touch them.. bleh) to place a few in for feeding. Otherwise you will end up over feeding and wasting it. 2-3 per meal would be good =)
