Welcome to Fishforum.com, Jennifer.

What foods did you use? Bettas often can be fussy with foods. Have you tried bloodworms yet? Minimze feeding bloodworms with it though as excessive feeding can lead to bloat. This could be a good start to prevent him from starving.

Newbie too!!

Hey Jennifer, I'm new to betta care as well - I just got a great little female and have her in a 3 gallon tank. She is active, swimming at the surface and seems healthy but mine won't eat either!!! And I've tried both Betta Bits and freeze dried blood worms - she won't touch either. I'm hoping somebody will have some suggestions as I'm a little worried about how long this can go on! Will she just finally eat if she gets hungry enough?? Best wishes to you and your new little friend :)

Your fish is probably just adjusting. Check his water temp. How big is his tank? Don't try and pressure him to eat. :D
