Feeding my new bettas

Yes I'm full of problems lately hah. This is my first time caring for an imported fish (of any species) though.

Problem now is they aren't accepting pellets... which I figured would happen. They are fed live food in Thailand. What can I do for them short of giving them live food. I want to wean them from constant live food consumption.

Keep offering pellets until they break down and eat. Bettas can easily go a week without food but they won't starve themselves.

true. no panic, keep trying. offer 1 or 2, if he doesnt eat them, remove them and wait another day. mine had the same problem coming from the uk. they are great eaters now.

I feed my imports nothing but frozen bloodwors...usually the females are the first to adjust and accept pellet food.
