I've got a zebra obliquidens female that eats rather robustly while holding. I've never seen another fish do this. If a pellet makes it to the bottom, she carefully picks it up and sort of chaws on it for a second or two, seemingly rearranging the contents of her mouth so that she can swallow the pellet but not her brood. I just watched her eat six in about 20 seconds.

She had a much larger mouthful of eggs last time she held and she did it then, too. Sorry for the shaky video - I took it with my phone with an ugly migraine.

She can do it. I have seen them eat small bits of flake food but not pellets.
