ok, its official. i have the pickiest betta alive -___-

so, i have a female VT betta and a male VT betta. and im pretty sure that my male, Nahh, is about th pickiest lil bugger in th world! when i first got him, i found out he wouldnt eat flakes. no big deal, lots of bettas wont, right? luckily, i also bought the pellets, and he loves them. but i wanted to give him a well balanced diet, so i also got freeze dried bloodworms. he wont even touch them! i thought that was strange, but i asked people on here and they said that was not out of the ordinary either, because it was FROZEN food that bettas cant resist. (this is what i had meant to get...oops lol) so, i went and picked up some frozen bloodworms, and some frozen brine shrimp for the heck of it. and he wont eat those either! he is just a picky little boy, i guess... oh well, at least Meekish will eat her dinner like a good girl the only thing she wont eat is flakes, so i have just been using them to "feed" the tank im currently cycling. at least something is eating it!

anyway, can you think of anything else i can try to feed my picky eater? mostly because i really do want him to have a balanced diet, and also i just want to find something that he will accept lol thanks for reading! :D

I use 'Omega One Natural Protein Formula Betta Buffet Flakes' (long name). & all I know is, is that my male VT loves them! I think I am going to have to get Bloodworms pretty soon, flakes isn't a good everyday meal...

Before I go to feed him he just swims slowly in and out of his little cave and once he sees those flakes into his bowls he gets all happy. (:

My Bettas:
Sashimi: Red Veil-Tail Male, May 2nd, 2011 (R.I.P)
Leela: Blue/Green Veil-Tail Female, May 14th, 2011
Gemini: Pearl/Green/Red Delta Male, May 21st, 2011 (R.I.P)

& Unnamed 5 Bettas


Old fisherman never die, they just smell like it.

You also might wanna try New Life Spectrum. Both of my betta's have too small mouths for the normal sized pellets so I feed them the small fish formula and they go insane for it.

yea, i know its not mouth size,because he loves his pellets. and my little girlie will eat everything i give her (except the flakes lol) and she definitely has a smaller mouth than he does. i guess i could try them just to vary it a little, i mean its still pellets but at least its something different... it could work :) thanks ! :D

No problem. They may like the scent of NLS a lot more too. The Small Fish Formula I use smells decent at best. (Not the usual smell betta food gives off.)
