We have a new crowntail we got from a petstore one week ago. He is in a 1 gal tank with a light and a filter (though we took the filter out a couple days ago to see if he prefered it). We don't have a heater in there, the room temp has been low- to mid-70s since we got him.
We have been trying to feed him pellets. He definitely sees the pellets, and twice has taken a nip of one. But he has yet to eat one and mostly he just ignores them. We haven't had a betta before, but he doesn't seem lethargic or sick - he moves around the tank and responds to noises, light and (unintentional) bumping.
Is he just not hungry yet? Is he a food-snob and is waiting for us to feed him something other than pellets?
Should I be patient? Or worried?
