Merlin is the pickiest out of my two boys. It took him five days to finally show enthusiasm for the pellets I switched to. Dragoon, on the other hand, is a little glutton. He will eat anything! If it even remotely looks like food, he'll eat it -.-'

Tsunami just doesn't get it that the Omega One pellets are very yummy and good for him and eating "junk food" isn't always good!

Some bettas are just like that. Hopefully he'll come around to the pellets. Have you tried fasting him for a day or two and then feeding him the pellets?

Merlin's just finicky, he didn't even like his bloodworm treats at first lol.

i'm only going to feed him pellets starting today haha and if he doesn't eat them then I guess he's not getting a meal. He just needs to learn that this is what you are eating from now on

That works too! Merlin figured it out that way, though I had to fast him a day too since he was a bit bloated from the flakes he had originally.

I have no clue what the pet store was feeding my boy. When I first brought him home, he was skinny and when I dropped food into his tank he looked so confused and didn't know what to do. poor guy!
