Well, it's day nine since I bought my betta.
I've dubbed him No Eat II, the descendent in spirit of No-Eat the First, an angel fish who lived over a month, was it two? refusing food, and then departed.
He's a lovely blue with an ivory head. But the blue is fading.
What should I do?
I have about 6 different brands of flake food I've tried, new and old from a box. Betta Min, regular flake, pellets. Then I tried freeze dried food.
Then the little protein balls, three brands, one what he supposedly was fed at the pet store.
And today I tried frozen mixed bait, a variety pack of shrimp, bloodworms, and other stuff. Nothing.
But he nibbles on the nearly invisible algae as if he's starving. Everything falls by unnoticed.
This is probably it, unless he's going to eat this stuff, I'm not up to raising gnat cultures -- I doubt he'd eat them anyway.
Is this is for some of them? They just refuse to eat for good? No?
Nothing can be done to tempt them to notice food? Some sort of flavoring?
The fish was $1.99, but the fish food companies have made out.
