YAY! I'm glad your betta decided to eat. Just a case of getting used to his new home.

i am glad your betta ate finally. And i do agree with Pogthefish bettas always hungry so be careful don't follow instructions on he box. I wish company change those instructions. I personally feed 2 pellet in the morning and 2 at night or sometimes 2 in the morning and one at night. It is recommended to fast betta once a week.
Always remove unseating food so it don't contaminate the water.

Also always acclimate your betta when you change his water. New water should be problematically the same temp as his. You can put water conditioner in and let the water sit for 24 hrs and this way water will be the same temp as his so you don't shock him with water temp difference.

I'm glad I read this thread. I've been overfeeding :( I don't feed for 2 minutes but my guy will eat up to 6 pellets at a time and in a very short period of time. Yikes..I'll cut back now. I've only had him for a week. He was from Petco and skinny.
