Question Spitting out FOOD!

Hi everyone! I'm basically a newbie in bettafish.com And I have a question. My betta always SPITS OUT HIS FOOD after chewing it for awhile. Does anyone knows what is wrong with my betta? Does he simply just not like the food I gave him (in pellets)..or is my betta sick? PLS & TQ!!

Welcome to Bettafish.com!

My betta, Tony refuses to eat betta pellets. He spits them out after chewing on them. You can just switch him to flakes. You can find BettaMin at walmart if you have one near you.

Yeah, mine does that too! But sometimes he looks like he is choking!

Nothing to worry about (unless your betta is chocking), just switch them to flakes.

As everyone else said this isn't anything to worry about. I noticed that Genji doesn't like pellets that great either so I switched him to flakes and he loves them. Now everyday he waits for me at breakfast time to give him some.

my new girl, Caroline, does that. often when she doesn't like the taste of pellets, or if they're too big. i solve it by offering her crushed pellets of a different kind(i have six different variety of pellets laying around), and she usually gobbles them up. :3 they may be too big for him. try crushing them up and offering them, or switch brands. flakes can be bad for bettas(they often swell up in their tummies, so make sure you soak them before giving them to him if you decide to go the flake rout), or, if you can, offer him live or frozen foods. :3 variety is good in a betta's diet!

Question

Thanks a ton for your post reply! It helps a lot!

But, JUST ONE MORE QUICK QUESTION! Is BETTA GRANULES also considered as PELLET? Or is it more like FLAKES? Please & TQ!

Kai used to do that. I went back to the store and asked what they fed their bettas. After I got those pellets, no problems. :)

I'm not sure, but I think those are like flakes designed to sink, so I wouldn't feed my betta granules.

My betta doesnt mind pellets, but I don't want her eating the same thing over and over. She does seem like she is getting bored of them. Is there anything that I can feed her, like from the fridge?
