One of my new ones is doing that. He goes after them but they keep popping out of his mouth. He's kind of small so I think the pellets are a bit big for him. I'm feeding him Nutrafin max that I got from somewhere. It's a flake food and when my fish gets a little bigger, I'll feed him the pellets. The pellets are Hikari Betta bio gold. You could try crushing up the pellets and see if he does any better with that.

I hope it's normal as mine does it all the time. Eats it, spits it, and eats it again. I figure he's just munching up the betta bite so it's more manageble for him.

I think when they chew it up, it just pops out of their mouths. They don't chew with their mouths closed. Haa

One of the females in my tank does this, she's the Queen B of the tank so I just figured it was her way of taking all the food away from the others.

My new one DID eat the pellets with no problem tonight. I had one last year that did that when I first got him and he did it for a few weeks, then ate like normal.
