If he's spitting it back out the pellets are probably to large. Try nls small fish formula

Picky eater

Yeah I notice when I feed my tank some of the smaller fish tend to eat/chew something up, spit it out then re-eat the smaller pieces they have just broken up.
Also I try to feed live or frozen food rather then pellets, as they tend to have to many phosphates in them.
