Yeah I don't know how to feed him though... I used a net and scooped him up the surface and put the pellets in the net and he wouldn't eat it. Now he keeps being in the cave and wouldn't come out for food.

I just drop some food in front of his face and he doesn't even care... You think he would come out when he's hungry?

I have nothing to contribute to this because I've never had an ADF, but they sound so cute (if difficult) and you guys are really making me want one *_*

My sister has two ADF and they both swim up and down and up and down, lol. Try getting a plant that almost reaches the surface, and maybe one or two of those betta bed leaf hammock things? When they're not going up and down, my sister's frogs sit on the tallest plant, close to the surface.

I read somewhere that an ADF won't eat food that's floating, don't know if it's true. You could try dropping one pellet so it floats and kind of "throwing" another so it sinks?

Yeah mine sit on the plant too hahaha. This morning he was sitting on the rock, which is really funny. I don't know how I'm going to feed him... He ate just a tiny bit yesterday and didn't eat anything today despite my effort and I don't want to keep throwing food in the tank because biscuit my fish would dig it out of the gravel and eat it

Pancake will happily cram anything into his mouth, floating, sinking, and otherwise, as long as it fits lol

I used craft mesh to make a betta hammock and he loves sitting on top of it.
