Hey there, Bettalover- I just got two free baby bettas from Petco a couple of days ago because they were so thin and in such poor condition. One was too far gone, but the other I have been feeding microworms and crushed up betta pellets. It is actually eating the crushed pellets very well, so maybe you can try that with your new fish. Some folks have good luck with rolling the pellets in garlic juice as well (the bettas seem to love that.) I'm doing very small feelings four to five times a day and changing the water 90% daily. It took a bit to get him started, but he's doing a lot better now. Go Hope! Good luck!

Yes, exactly, when a betta is sick, and stressed, it does take time to get that betta to eat normally, so keep trying, and give her time, I am in the process of treating a rescue and he is coming along great, just a few days back, that was not the case I thought I was going to lose him, but I have him in a Krittr Keepr and treating with AQ salt for fin rot, and he miracously turned around, he's eating much better, and swimming actively. So keep doing what your doing, you will see her come around as well:)

Aww I'm so sorry :( *hugs* At least you gave her a comfortable setting to have her last moments in, she wasn't floating in a filthy cup when it happened, you let her go with dignity.
R.I.P. hope
