I wouldn't worry quite yet, they can go a week without food. Is she still lethargic or acting different?

She is definitely not lively like she usually is, but I wouldn't call her lethargic anymore either. She seems to be in the middle. I had my boyfriend go over there and stick his face up to the glass (usually she would come darting over to say, "HI, DADDY!", but this time she just slowly drifted to him, then went back to her corner (by the heater) then she went back to him. Now she's going back and forth.

hmm. I don't know what to say. Could it be that she's old? If the aq salt doesn't work I dont know what else will help.

She wasn't very big when we got her, and that was last September. I couldn't say how old she is for sure. I just wish she'd eat something.

I'm hoping she'll just eat if she gets hungry enough.

Do you have any garlic juice? I hear garlic can entice a betta to eat.

She seems really lively today (like her normal self.) She didn't eat this morning, but I'll try in a little while and see what happens.

Still not eating. We have tried two different brands of pellets, bloodworms, salting her tank, cupping her and THEN feeding her. Nothing works. I'm frantic at the moment.
