He still hasn't eaten a single pellet... :/ I can't find the NLS ones...

He doesn't seem sick or anything, he swims around a lot and makes bubbles... (wouldn't exactly call it a bubble nest yet but he's getting there lol.)

Do a 50% water change, if you forgot to rinse the plants before putting them in the water, it introduced dust particles, otherwise it stirred up the gravel, and it happens to me every time I move decorations (even without adding new ones) just don't forget to condition the water :)

Still not eating? did you try frozen bloodworms? I use freeze dried to add variety, but frozen ones are better, and bettas are more likely to eat them if they are picky eaters. Also, just a suggestion, maybe try feeding him during a different time of the day? Maybe the store had them on a very strict feeding schedule because of the employee's shifts, and you are trying to feed him during a different time? Fish can be as finicky as people.

He's still not eating.. :/ I even cut the pellet in half and he still just ate it and then spit it back up and won't touch the other half...

Idk what to do, theres no way a betta can be this picky... he hasn't ate actually anything I've given him in a whole week.

I'd make a post in the betta emergencies section. I did see someone suggest once to dip the food in garlic juice, but I am not experienced in treating bettas that could be ill because I've never had those problems, and my picky eaters just needed experimenting with food. So it could be a symptom of something, better ask in that section to be safe.

I'm sure you'll get loads of suggestions there to help :)
