I just got a male crowntail betta about five days ago, and so far I can't get him to eat anything. I've tried one brand of pellets and freeze dried bloodworms. A woman at the pet store told me to keep trying with the food I have for a couple days since he is probably still adjusting to the new food. But I've heard a lot about some bettas just being overly picky. If he never warms up to the things I'm giving him, what should I try?
I don't know much about bettas but I have read a lot about people who buy a garlic extract that they put on the food. It is supposed to really make the food attractive to the fish. I saw some at Petsmart today when I was there. See if anyone also recommends that first before you go and buy it though.
