Hi there! Yesterday I got a new little Betta. I had been wanting her for a few weeks, and I finally broke down yesterday. She seemed to be doing fine last night, though a little confused about this big new space she has, but when I fed her the pellets were to big for her mouth! They also sunk very quickly, which bothered me, but she kept trying to eat them anyways. Then this morning I fed her again and the same thing happened. I left the food in there while I went to breakfast and when I got back when it was gone, but then again it might be sitting there in between the rocks. So I was wondering how I could help her get some food! Should I crush up the pellets or get new ones or what? Thanks!
Also, on a side note for future reference, how can you tell if a female betta has clamped fins? I just want to make sure I can tell since that is a big sign of illness.
