betta feeding habits

I have a male betta in a tank with 2 cory cats and a few ghost shrimp, they all get along very well. The problem I am having is recently during feeding time the betta will not touch flakes, pellets or worms, he will only eat the wafers for the cats. Any suggestions on how to prevent this or should I just give up on the flakes, pellets and worms and drop an extra wafer in the tank.

Stop dropping the wafers. The Cory and Ghosties will eat leftover pellets or flakes or anything else.

I do not separate-feed any of the residents of my community tanks. They all get the same thing be it pellets, live or frozen. No issues with Betta overeating.
