I found also, that if they go long enough without eating, they'll eat the pellets you have. Blue was like that at first, but now he just gobbles his food down everyday.

I just remembered I'm fasting them all today, so I'm going to give the pellets a try tomorrow.
I figured if I kept showing her the pellets, she'd eventually eat them. I just don't want her to get any ideas with the Otos. :P

Well, I tried the Wardleys today and she didn't like them at all. Ugh. I guess until I can find something she'll eat I'll just give her a bloodworm or two every other day or longer.
On another note, all the other Betta will eat the Wardleys so I don't have to go out and buy more food anytime soon.

That's weird. I don't know what else to try.

Oh yeah I know they can go awhile without food. The only thing I'm worried about are the Otos. Do you think she'd try to snack on them if I fast her more?

Has she ever shown any aggression to them? If not then it should be fine.

I would keep trying the pellets and hopefully she'll start eating them.

Nope not really. She was curious about them at first, but I think she realized they weren't a threat and they didn't take her food. After that, she ignored them.

I'll keep trying the pellets. She really does need a balanced diet, I wish I could just tell her that.

Is she eating anything at all? I would mix pellets with whatever she is eating.
