yeah, feeding the babies just isnt sitting right with me and as 1077 said, its just not enough for him with all that he needs. I will go to the LFS today and see what they have to offer.

Agreed. By offering many choices, the fish will soon recognize that what you are offering is food and then perhaps you can slip the pellets in. Maybe try mixing pellets with garlic.
I have plenty of guppies that I could feed my dempsey but I know once they are offered ,it will be increasingly more difficult to get him to try the pellets. I keep trying and he keeps refusing but I am hopeful. At least he is eating the other foods I mentioned.

yes, i have decided against feeding any fish to my fish. wheni came in to scoop out the pellets they were gone and i didnt see them any where in the tank so i am assuming he has eaten them.

@1077 fresh garlic, like smash a clove and mix it in, or powdered garlic??

Garlic clove mashed up and mixed with pellets. Can place what you don't use in fridge for next feeding.
Have also used minced garlic in an effort to get fish to eat medicated foods.
