Betta spitting out pellet all the time..

My rescue betta seems to have a problem swallowing the new life formula that my female has no problem eating. He spits it, follows it, spits it, follows it, on and on and the particles get around the tank. He then eats those little particles.


What can I do to help him? They are 1mm big.

Maybe they are a lil too big, I am not sure of the size of the Hakari Gold, they are micro size, extremely tiny..and my guys have had no problems at all, if it is real tiny he shouldn't either, but for whatever reason he wants it smaller, or softer, sometimes after being in the water softens it up, if its too hard..not sure about the ones you are using~

You fish probably just needs time to adjust to the change in food size or just the food itself.

Is he new? New bettas will usually take a while to get used to new food. He could be picky, too. You can also try frozen brine shrimp or bloodworms.
