I have freeze dried bloodworms that he usually loves and I have pellets that I've been trying as well. I have yet to try soaking them in garlic so I was going to try that today.

Not really, he kinda swims around the top of his bowl and just sits there most of the time but he's pretty dang active when I try and get him out of his bowl so I can clean it.

Does he even try to eat the food you offer? Because if he does and than spits it out you should probably go with smaller bites of food..or micro pellets.

No, he looks at it then swims away from it. Or sometimes into it. I even try pushing it by him again.

Just keep up with the water changes and with the added aqua salt. And make sure to keep the water heated to 80 degrees....with you doing that he will come around and start eating. :] Ill keep my fingers crossed for you.

Thanks, I hope so. It seems like forever since he's eaten anything.

Bettas can go weeks without food as long as you keep their water heated and cleaned. But you have a right to be worried. I know I would be.. But like I said.. Im sure he will start eating soon.

you could try a live food of some kind for him, that might interest him more. And if he gets picky on them, ween him off, little by little.
