Strange Eating Habits?

My pk boy when he eats does something very strange. Today I gave him mysis.
While eating them he would swallow it, spit it out, then eat it again.
This repeats 3 or 4 times.
Any ideas?

Normal. Some of them do this. The main thing is he eventually eats it.

Sometimes. Its about a 50 50 shot.
He tends to eat alot less than my other betta/fish in general.

Today he only bit the heads off, then played with the bodies for an hour before losing interest.

Bettas chew their food.. we don't always notice, but if the food is a bit big they will use their tiny little teeth and chew it. Since they can't do it like us, they have to spit it out once or twice to break it down :)

For mine, it is too big, she would suck it, spit it out, chew it, and then shake her whole head as if she is an alligator chowing on its prey... then she would look really sad that the pellet is still the same size and let it drop to the bottom and forget about it.
