Hi Steve,

I'm no pro but what has worked for me in the past is incremental
introduction of the pelleted food over a long period of time - feeding
more and more of the pellet food, and less and less live food. You would
need to be incredibly careful with mellis doing this as they seem to
fade away to nothing very quickly when they are unhappy. That and you
would need to watch the additional filtration demands of feeding
packaged food.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Andrew
