Betta fish not eating ...

How long can a betta fish survive without eating ? My *NEW* Betta fish that I got on April 9th won't eat. I've tried Blood worms, Brine Shrimp, Betta pellets, Betta flakes, and he won't eat any of them. Also unlike my previous betta *God rest his fishy soul* Deltax isn't very friendly. He often stays floating on the top of the water and his personality is shy or independent. Doesn't show excitement when I tap the glass and won't eat. I keep fearing he'll starve himself to death. Anyone know how I can get him to eat.

Please don't take this the wrong way since we are not looking at each other and talking..I want to offer and extend some friendly advice/information....Those whom live in glass houses...really do not appreciate their glass houses being tapped...

How often do you feed your betta fish?

How often do you perform a water change?
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change?
