Ping Pong Push

I'm relatively new to caring for betas and I just bought him a ping pong ball. I want a strong beta and heard they could build strength from playing with them. However I can't get him to touch the thing! Any ideas/feedback? Thanks!

Hi there MrBetaFishKid and welcome to the forum. I also tried a ping pong with my betta and he would not touch it either. Not sure what to tell you that would help but maybe some of the other members will have some ideas for you.

I haven't tried adding table tennis balls to my bettas tanks (yet), but from what I've read some bettas use them more then others.

Why do you want a strong betta? Other methods of entertaining your fish include holding a mirror up to his tank for five minutes a day, providing a variety of different foods, and occasionally redecorating the tank.

Thanks for your reply. I'm planning on getting my betta blood worms and I'll make sure to pick up a mirror! (When I say strong betta I just mean healthy.)
