I have had her for about 11 months with no problems. I have not changed anything but the last few feedings she has been taking her pellets and spitting them out. This happened about 4 or 5 times and I finally removed her food. She is acting very normal with the exception of not wanting to eat She normally gobbles her food right up and then begs me for more. I offered some blood worms and she ate those she just won't eat any normal food. I bought a fresh thing of food thinking that may be the problem but it she won't eat that either and a different brand but same problem. Please help I don't know what else to do. Thanks

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? No change noted.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Last week she started spitting out her food. I fasted her for two days and then she ate normally for about a day and a half. Yesterday morning she went back to not wanting to eat. I tried giving her 2 bloodworms to see if she would eat those and she gobbled them right down. I thought maybe it was because her food is about a year old so I got her some fresh new food today (same kind) but she still won't eat it. I also tried another brand but she won't eat that either.
All other behaviors are normal.
