Picky Betta - Won't Eat

I got two veiltail females the other day and one of them will eat ANYTHING but the other won't touch a thing. I've given her flakes, pellets, frozen brine... She'll nibble at it a bit, then spit it right back out and swim away, like it doesn't taste right or something! I asked the pet store what they had been feeding them, and they said pellets but they weren't even sure what brand. I'm really hoping she's just settling, but if she is really being this picky, any ideas? I used to feed my old tank live brine, but I don't currently have the space for that kind of a setup....

Welcome to the forum.....if you just got them it may be adjustment issues with her....each Betta can be different....just keep the water clean and at the correct temp..... offer her food each day....she will eat in time....

Love to see some pics and hear more about your Bettas....

Fast her for a couple days (if possible), and then try the different food again. Just give her some time to adjust.
