Betta Pellet food

I have been for like 6 months giving my Betta fish Blood Worms that I got at Pet World. Of cource the worms are dead. I talked to someone and they said it's healthier to give them Betta pellets. So I got some and I tried giving my Betta it but he seems to not want to eat them. How do you make your Betta eat the pellets?

It's just getting acquainted with the pellets. It'll eventually learn that it's food.

Give him time. He'll eat it when he is hungry enough. Its like a little kid that won't eat veggies after being fed candy all the time.. :)

The problem is your fish has already been too accustomed to bloodworms to eat anything else. Put 3 drops of Kent liquid garlic on the food. This might help.

I' am just worried that if he won't eat anymore just because the food is different so I need to make sure if I just kept giving him the pellets he will eat them and get use to them.

I think he'll eat when he realizes that the pellets are all he's going to get. Try the liquid garlic on the food, as Lupin suggested. Its supposed to make the food more tasty.

I give my betta a mixture of betta pellets, blood worms, and brine shrimp. Not all at the same time of course, but just one type of food is not enough to provide all their nurishment. Since they are carnivores, they do need a diet high on protein.
