So I had an impulse purchase at Petsmart today. The bettas were on clearance and there were kids talking about how many they could afford and how many could fit in a tank and the mom didn't care . . .
I now own a betta. He's a pretty and active boy, seems quite healthy. I gave him his dinner of betta pellets tonight and he was right on top of that. But he popped the pellet in his mouth, worked it for a bit, then spit it out. He repeated that twice as it floated down, then ignored it when it hit the bottom. He repeated that with the other two pellets he got. I broke one in half and he ate that, but it seems hit and miss.
Are the pellets too big, or is this his subtle way of telling me to try again with a different type of food? These appear to be Tetra brand.
