Since doing that I have noticed that he can't quit manage to grab the food with his mouth, it takes him a couple of times at first to get it. Any ideas as to what this might be?
What are you feeding him? If pellets, soak them in some tank water for a few minutes prior to feeding so they get soft. He may just not be used to eating....many walmart's don't feed their bettas.
Also, pics when you get a chance! :) We'd love to see him!
