How small are the mini pellets. I'm giving my goldie small sinking pellets and he's eating that with no problem, but everything else that is bigger than a pencil tip, is giving him problems. I cut up an apple and it was such a small peice (I mean teeny) and he ate it, had issues, released it, sucked it back in, released it, sucked it back in released it, and then he got tired of it all and moved on.

They are about 1 millimeter across, really small bead-like things Smiley There are also color enhancing pellets of the same brand!
