I am a little concerned about my new betta that I bought from Petco. I did not plan on buying another betta but the container he was in was filled with a lot of dust and debris so i couldn't help but bring him home. I feed my other betta, Delta, Top Fin betta pellets and he loves them. But this new guy just spits them out. I have tried giving him a blood worm and he could care less about it too. I've never had such a picky eater. I have even soaked the pellets in Garlic Guard and that didn't work either. Can anyone recommend a good food to start him on that he might actually eat? I am worried about him not eating because I know my Petco does not take care of their bettas so I don't know how long he has gone without food.
Also, I know his tank is small and that they need a heater. No worries, I am going to the store this weekend to buy another Aqueon 5gal with a heater. The 1 gal he is in is just temporary.
