My girls are all cows. Omg. Loads of pellets amongst the eight of them....drop in algae wafers for the snails and plecos...Nope. They finish eating their pellets and dive for the algae wafers...AND START EATING THEM. I watched a snail boot a girl off it's wafer. It was awesome.

Those 10 pellets, do you bulk feed him 10 every two days?? You might want to feed smaller meals 2-3 times a day instead. It's not healthy to binge eat and the discomfort might be causing him to nip his fins. Frequent small meals are a better plan for feeding.

I feed him daily ... But he only wants to eat every other day its weird ... I am hoping in time that will change.

He doesn't fin nip anymore ... His fins are still healing from the damage he did when his heater went out.

If you offer up different foods and feed in smaller amounts, I bet his apetite will increase :)

It doesn't take much for any of my boys, or the boys I know from my family, to take to frozen bloodworms. Then 3-4 different types of pellets so mealtime is unpredictable and exciting. In the spring and summer, fruit flies and live cultured mosquito larvae are especially welcome.

I am not allowed to culture mosquito larvae ... *sad* I do have frozen bloodworms so we will see what they like

What other pellets should I feed? I am feeding Omega One. NLS isn't really an option ... Its hard to find and when you do its like $15 with shipping and I only have Finn

I'm not "allowed" to either. However, fruit flies occur naturally in homes. Those and springtails. Bettas love them. Someone posted their betta eating a spider before too!! Freaky.

Well, anything with a high protein content. Omega One is my staple but I also have Aqueon betta pellets, Attisons (someone from the forum sent them to me) and a tetra brand one called "crumbles" which gets fed about once a month bc it's high in grains and crap but we all love take out every now and then!!
