How Can I Get Mudminnows to Eat Pellets?

i would like to do the same
right now, they will only eat live foods. when i drop a shrimp pellet in and it gets soggy, my smaller mudminnow will eat it, but he spits it out small bits at a time. i'm not sure if its actually spitting it all out, or eating some of it.
the big mudminnow will hit a pellet on the way down, but then he spits it out and doesnt touch it.
how can i train them to eat pellets?

I put my mudminnows in a tank with shiners who eat flake and they eventually learned that flakes are food so mine now attack flake food.
my two smaller mudminnows now eat flakes that make it to the bottom, but my biggest mudminnow only accepts live foods.

I have had the best luck with TetraColor Tropical Granuals. I don't know why they keep changing the name of this product. It was Discus bits, Tetra bits, Tetra color bits, and several other names over the years. One of the best foods I have found to get any picky fish to eat prepared foods. It is a good size for most fish from two to six inches, although getting small for fish over four inches. It can easily be powderized with your fingers for smaller fish.
