Does she look any different apperance wise? Fuzz, spots, fin rot, etc?

What are your water parememeters, and how warm is the water?

Sometimes bettas can be picky. Some bettas take several days before they will eat. What kind of food have you been trying to feed?

As said, bettas can be picky and will eat their regular food, and sometimes just stop for a while. You want to vary it with pellets, brine shrimp, bloodworms, etc.

I have been feeding her pellets that I bought at WalMart called Wardley's Essentials Betta Food.

Well that would explain it. Mine absolutely refuse to eat wardleys pellets. I get mine Aqua culture betta pellet food from walmart and mine love it. It has tiny pellets. Mine didn't like the large pellets that came in the wardleys.

My fish also refuses to eat Wardley's! I got Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets from the LFS and they are smaller than Wardley's and he likes them much better.

bobbysgrl I would get a differen't type as soon as possible. Also pick up some freeze dried blood worms as a treat. Don't feed her too much though maybe 2 times per week.
