I mixed my Wardleys with the bio gold, too. I'm glad the Wardleys are a little bigger because thats mostly what they'll be getting while I'm gone.

i went through that with Jack, when i first got him he would NOT eat anything. even the bio-gold pellets which boggled my mind because all my bettas love them. i was really worried because the 4 bettas i had before never did that. i finally got him some wardleys pellets and he nommed those up quick. he still doesn't care for blood worms just yet though lol. so yes, maybe try wardleys?

I agree. My betta would only eat tropical flake food. He would never eat Wardly pellets. A few days ago I got him some Hikari Bio-gold. He loves it.

They must have in order to be as picky as they are.

I picked up the Wardley's tonight and I'll give it a try tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers!

Sure hope things work out for you. Mr. Foosh absolutely turned his nose up at Top Fin pellets, so I fed him bloodworms for a week because I was in the middle of a crisis at work and did not need more stress. On the recommendation of several people here, I picked up Hikari Bio Gold pellets, but I also picked up Hikari Brine Shrimp cubes. I gave him Brine Shrimp for two days, then tried him on Hikari Bio Gold. After one day of Man vs. Foosh (he is a bit stubborn), he decided to try the Bio Gold and now he loves them!

So maybe try him on something other than bloodworms or pellets first, then try pellets again. It might work...

I tried the Wardleys pellets this morning.... Nope, he won't eat them... So bloodworms it is until I can get to the bigger town to find something else.
