Default Pellet training new BD pup

Just got myself another BD pup a few days ago.
He's eating small shrimps and also frozen fish.

I want to get him also on massivore , my routine is massivore i feed in the morning to my rays and frozen fish or shrimps at night. that way they are fed 2 x a day.

i've been able to get my other rays on massivore using the soak method.

was wondering if I dont do the soak and just drop the massivore, i can get this pup to take massivore too? how many would you guys try for pup this size?
the P14 he is with does take massivore already.
i was thinking its faster to just drop Massivore than preparing Massivore soaked in blood worm juice

Beautiful new ray u have there bro! younger rays are easier to convert and your P14 is already taking pellets. just drop some in and he will likely try to eat the pellets as he would want to compete with the P14. keep us updated, Good Luck!

oh bigger spot is BD
just make sure no ammonia, nitrite . Ph i've been keeping in 7.5
I do water changes 1-2 times a week .Bds are quite hardy i think, P14 i've read a little more sensitive , but so far mine seems to be doing well

hows the pellet conversion going bro squid

btw does the pellets you give make their spots turn a different colour, due to the colour enhancer in it?
