This is actually a very large poop, they're normally not this big however it's difficult to tell the size in this one. Basically your Betta's poop should look the color of food that you give him. So if they are brown pellet's it should come out solid looking brownish/orange. Now if you feed pea's then it could turn green or some weird color.

But since most Betta food is brown, you're looking for something orangy-brown hope my obnoxious Betta poop picture taking helps XD
Unfortunately your pic didn't load! I just see a white box with a red x in it. Oh well. It couldn't be any more disgusting that my daughter's dirty diapers. This does confirm that my little fishy has yet to poop though. Maybe if he would eat something.....

Oh weird, coming up for me.

Actually it's not disgusting at all, just looks like mashed up pellets in a solid mass, sometimes it's almost flaky and not solid but for the most part it's solid.

HeadlessLegoMom (cute name btw) what does he eat and when?

Sorry, original poster (OP), I know this kind of veered off your subject but I guess it's still relevant right? Either way, feel free to post when you get back on!

I brought him home on Thursday and he hasn't eaten since. At first he was spitting the pellets back out, so I tried breaking them into smaller pieces to no avail. I also tried a trick I read about putting a straw over the food. He grabbed it out of the straw but still spit it out. Now he is ignoring the food altogether. I think he just doesn't like it because he seemed hungry after I changed his water. I have Hikari pellets and dried bloodworms being shipped, but I will try to get some daphnia or brine shrimp tomorrow.

So position the laptop in front of him or hold it and take a picture XD lol In his hobby you've got to be innovative ^_^

Either way, do water changes every day to help keep the fin rot at bay then if you think he has it. Adding Stress Coat water conditioner will help heal tears and rips.
