I might leave the fish to beg for food and then offer the pellets. If it refuses,, net out the pellets and try again the following day. Fish appears to have appetite which is good But I fear the needed vitamins will not be realized with diet of molly fry. Might try offering chopped earthworm,frozen chopped Krill , frozen chopped shrimp, Squid, Mussles, Anything but feeders for they alone will not in my opinion sustain the fish health wise.
I feel for you. I have a Dempsey that absolutely refuses pellets of any kind but will take the foods I mentioned if I thaw them and cut them into pieces he can handle.
Keep trying with different foods and hopefully ,you can wean him from the feeders.
