I blanch lettuce and give that to my shrimpies. My betta completely ignores the lettuce.

Da fudge is in Thing 1???
You can't really see it too well in this picture, but if you compare the picture of Thing 2 to Thing 1, you can sort of see it. I'll see about getting a few more shots if you can't really see anything.

And here's a picture of Thing 2 to attempt to compare.

My betta is a pig and tries to eat the lettuce too! He does spit some of it out though...

What diet are you feeding your betta? Maybe some variety would curb his "piggy-ness"?
I give my bettas pellets as a staple, but 3-4 days out of a week he gets either frozen brine shrimp or freeze dried bloodworms. I also fluctuate different brands of pellets each feeding.

My bettas eat mainly live daphnia (all different sizes) with the occasional pellet and frozen brine shrimp. So basically, it's 5-6 days a week with the live daphnia and 1-2 days with brine shrimp or pellets. He'd eat until he explodes!

I put pieces of lettuce in that were too big for my betta...he tried and failed to eat them so hopefully that will work!
