Can you suggest some pellet foods for them?

Also, they seem to take the shrimp pellets I drop in for them and spit them
back out immediately.

This is normal Bluegill behavior in a tank or in a lake. There is no answer
except to wean them to pellet food which they will eat and thrive on, but
quite as aggressively. There is good reason why worms are a favorite bait
Bluegills. I think you will soon need a larger tank for these guys.
