I bought a new betta yesterday morning. He looked perfectly happy when I bought him at the shop, and he still looks healthy and has all of his colour.
However; I tried feeding him last night and this morning, and he wouldn't eat the pellets. (I gave him one on both feedings).
Tonight, I also put one pellet in his tank - he took about 5 minutes to swim to the top of the tank, and he put it in his mouth, but kept spitting it out.
Is there a reason he is doing this? Is he struggling to eat the pellets? Is there something else I could try feeding him with?
