So I picked up some cons yesterday and they're being kinda fussy with the food thing. I've tried three different types of flake and two varieties of pellet so far. The majority of it they eat and just spit right back out.

I'm going to pick up some bloodworms tomorrow. I'm sure they'll go apeshit over that.

But are there any dry foods that they normally eat willingly? Some type of super orgasmic cichlid food?

Thanks.

My new O is doing the same thing, he spits everything out expect freezed dried baby shrimp. I believe the little guy was being feed guppies, which I won't use unless I quarantine or breed and plus I'm currently out. Anyways, I'd ask the pet store what they were feeding them like rchan suggested, and go from there. I'd also watch for signs of internal parasites.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll drop by the LPS tomorrow where I got them from and see what they were feedin' 'em. Meanwhile tonight I tried some betta pellets and they seemed to like those just fine.

I think they're just not fans of flakes... And I don't know what was up with the other pellet foods. But whatever.
