Question Picky picky

Gabriel won't eat. Nope, it's not that she doesn't want to eat, because she does. She doesn't like the Hikari Betta Bio-Gold
She just spits it back out. I have no idea what to get her, because all my other Betta love these things.

Should I keep trying to give them to her? Try something else?
I'm worried she'll start getting a little too hungry and decide to snack on my Otos.

The only thing my Betta is eating right now is freeze dried bloodworms, which I hear isn't a good idea to feed them that all the time... He won't even look at the pellets I have and the flakes, no way. Wondering if I should try different pellets? Another ? I bought some brine shrimp, they come in like 1/2 inch cubes... do I have to cut it up or will they eat the whole thing, if he'll eat it?

Yeah, my first Betta only ate the bloodworms. When I fed him the Hikari Betta Bio-Gold though, he loved them.

Thanks, I'm heading out now to see if I can find him something different. We have a very few places here, so I am going to try the grocery store!

Wardley pellets are the only thing all four of my bettas will eat. Try those.

I just got some of the Wardley ones from the grocery store. I'll try them tonight as he's already eaten some worms... Thanks for all the suggestions. This place is great for first time fish moms and dads!

Cool thanks! Oh, I was wondering until I get the pellets, is it okay to give her a couple of blood worms every other day or so?
I just fed a couple to her and she actually ate them (I saw her looking around for food and like I said, I don't want her to snack on the Otos).
