I am a new Betta Crocktail owner.
I just bought my fish Oscer on Thursday from Petsmart.
I have always loved Betta's as As I'm older now, with a lot of medical conditions, I felt buying a Betta would help me from keeping stressed and such. As I am home 24/7 I felt I needed a pet fish.
However, after. I took Oscer my new Betta pet home with me on Thursday, i did not feed him, as they told me he was feed at the store .
So I waited until Friday to feed Oscer. I have a 5 gallon fish tank, with a small sunking ship in it, filter, all the good stuff.
I let the water sit for over 24 hours before buying Oscer.
Friday comes....I give Oscer 4 pellets That petsmart recommended me getting.Oscer did not eat any of the pellets. I checked 4 hours later. The pellets are still in the tank.
I do not wont to over feed Oscer. Or Under feed Oscer. But he will not eat the food that I bought him. I have also, bought the Betta flake food.Because I knew Betta's where picky eaters.
I just don't know, if I should buy something else for him....My first thought that came to my mind, was maybe Oscer is just trying to get use to being inside a fish tank instead of a container.Does anyone know, if that could be a possablility, on why he isn't eating? And yes, the tempature in the fish tank is at the right digrees for him.
