I avoid anything with artificial/chemical ingredients - this counts most fruit flavored pellets. I feed Harrison's as it is organic (and therefore non GMO), no artificial ingredients/chemicals, etc.
I did find Fluff had a hard time eating super fine pellets initially as he didn't know what to do with them. He kept trying to hull them. I gave him the mash (essentially powder) which he could just eat and then stirred in super fine (for variety of texture). After he figured out you didn't hull it - you just eat it he took to them fine.
Perhaps starting your tiel on the mash so it is easy to eat and moving up to a bigger size will help him figure out what to do with it.
