Super worried!

Okay so this morning I went to feed Stu his usual breakfast of Betta Bio-Gold Pellets, which I usually give him around three. He ate the first one, but when eating the second, he continuously ate it and then regurgitated it . I removed it, and replaced the pellet, but then he continued doing the same thing. Is this normal? Or is there something wrong with Stu?

Sometimes the pellets are different sizes and it was probably just too big for him.

Hmmm... Ive had him for a few days now, and he was eating the pellets fine before today.

I wouldn't worry, bettas don't eat a lot so if he doesn't feel like eating today it's not a big issue.

Do you soak your pellets before you feed him? They're easier for the fish to eat that way.

No I haven't tried that yet, so hopefully that will work. Would it also help for him to have a feeding schedule?

If you soak the pellet before feeding the nutrients get leached out into the water and not in your fishies belly where it should be.

Really? I hadn't heard that.

OP, maybe if your fish doesn't warm up to pellets you should try flakes then? I've used both in the past and I prefer pellets because they're easier to clean up after, but my fish seem to prefer flakes.

Ill try again this afternoon to feed him... Maybe he will be hungry then. I'll also try soaking them before hand, although my pellets are the ones that float.
