Unhappy Betta not eating!

I've had this betta for 5 months and it used to eat too much but I ran out of pellets. I bought a different brand because I forgot the brand name and my brother threw it out! So all I remember is that it has blood worms as the main ingredient. I bought him tetra betta plus floating mini pellets and he won't eat them! He will put it in his mouth spit it out then they agian. At first I thought they were too big so I cut them in half and he ate it but spit it out agian. I don't know what to do I've been starving him for 5 days now and he still won't eat.

Get a different brand or wait him out. They can go a couple weeks or more without eating. I use New Life Spectrum with no problems.

I'd suggest getting a higher quality food (either Omega One or NLS) rather than waiting him out. Eventually he will eat, but there is a reason he doesn't want to eat it.
