I have been browsing this forum for a while now and have decided to join to see if I am able to find certain answers. I've seen much criticism on food, tank, everything, but this is what suits my situation. My betta, Tuna, lives in the Aquafarm v2. I am a new owner to all of this, Back To The Roots includes a some essentials for the tank and the fish. The pellets, in the beginning, Tuna would chew and spit some out. After a few days, once he sees the the pellets, he will chomp them down like there is no tomorrow. I have been browsing a lot and kept reading about variety. I purchased Omega One's Freeze Dried Blood Worms, have had great review on Petsmart.
Since they were pretty big, I dropped 1 worm in pieces, Tuna would look at it, keep staring at it, and just swim away. I tried dropping a whole piece and he did the same thing. I tried to make it the size of the pellet (lengthwise) and dropped a few at a time, and he did try a bite but ignored the rest. This morning I fed him pellets as usual. Came home from work and tried to put the bloodworms again. He did the same stare and scurried along. Dropped some pellets in there and he chomped them away.
Any ideas on how to get Tuna to eat the bloodworms? I really hope he will eventually eat it. If he doesn't...what should I do with the container of bloodworms? Look forward to all your tips & tricks!
