Spock, my crowntail, had no idea what a freeze dried bloodworm was. The first time I dropped one in for him, he stared at it. I could almost hear him saying, "What the bleep is that?! I'm not eating that thing!" My other betta has just finally realized that when I am right in front of his tank, he may get food. I'm interested in training them both to enter cups. It could be useful some day...

Don't really need worms to train them.

Once your bettas get used to you. They'll follow you around when you stop close to the tank. Mine will gladly swim into a net & won't struggle to get out because they know food's coming.

Also my bettas don't seem to like the freeze dried worms, they prefer the pellets. I have the good brands of worms too, Hikari, Omega One.

I could use cups to catch them, but I prefer to keep my hands dry cause sometime I have lotion on them so I use nets.

Ah, that makes sense, my old betta never liked FD blood worms, either.

Mine loves them now. I have Omega One. Mostly they get pellets. I have two kinds, don't remember what they are right now, though. One type is smaller than the other. This goes for my bettas, too. My smaller betta has trouble with the bigger pellets, so he just gets the littler kind. I'm going to have to start working on getting them to go into cups. I think at least one of them will love the attention... I could almost pick him up out of the water if I tried.

Oh wow! Haha my new betta is actually pretty shy! He's on AQ salt so I have to do daily water changes. Tomorrow will be the first time I get him back in his cup, I hope all goes well! xD

I've trained my males to come and get dinner when I tap on the glass. It helps because I'm always fussing at the tank with various things so they know when it's dinner time. A tap on the glass means pellets are coming. They've also learned to look where I point in case they miss a pellet. Floating plants can make finding dinner difficult sometimes.

Anything you associate with food will get those greedy bettas on board.
