betta fish not eating?

so I just tried feeding my new betta fish and he isn't eating. He was eating fine this morning and the past few days. Tried feeding him omega one pellets...spit them out. Tried dried blood worms...spit them out. Tried Nutrafin betta pellets...spit them out. What could be wrong?

He's new & still settling in. Maybe just feed him once a day. So long as he eats once a day I wouldn't worry.

Have you added anything new recently? New decor to his tank/moved things around? A new brand of food? Is he acting differently otherwise?

Like Shellica said, he's probably just settling :)
But if he still isn't eating after a few more days to a week, you could try Seachem's Garlic Guard. It not only builds up a betta's immune system (I believe), but they also find the smell and taste irresistible.
