Why do my 6cm fish (mollies and rainbows) not eat pellets rated for 3-10cm fish? They go crazy over TetraMin flakes though... Any opinions?

A lot of fish prefer flakes to pellets and vice versa...also if it’s new to them, it could take awhile before they recognize it as food.

It took my fish a few months before they suddenly decided they liked dry fish food (pellets or flakes) in addition the to blood worms and daphnia I had been feeding. I guess they just got used to it finaly.
