Blood worms may be given more than you currently feed. You may want to try daphnia, brine shrimp, and microworms. All of these are live cultures. A good quality flake would also work. Continue feeding as you normally do. Just monitor his intake and remove any uneaten food.

i am not sure what african frogs eat but i would say you just get one or two ghost shrimp and that would be more then enough to get your betta on the right track. after it eats the shrimp feed it an unshelled cooked pea for fiber so your betta cleans out its system and hopefully begins eating normally
