He ate two pellets last night! I'm so relieved. I was going to go buy every type of food I could find, but I don't have to anymore. (which is good, because I've already had to dip into my NYC trip funds lol. Totally worth it though ^^)

And I picked up some shrimp... he ate half of one but wouldn't eat the other half.

(And, on another good note, he made a bubble nest over night. I think he just had to get used to everything :])

Good to hear things are okay. :)

Ah, Tian-Tian was picky when I first got him. I switched him to Wardley and I haven't had any trouble since. The Top-Fin (that he wouldn't eat) now feeds Taco (though both of them enjoy Wardley...)

I was recommended Hikari but the price for it here is more than I'm willing to pay. :D So whatevs on that.

I had problems with my betta girls eating when I first got them - they too, only liked the worms. I did a day of fasting, then tried adding wardley flakes - which I crushed smaller - they ate some...

I have noticed so far they don't like the bio-gold, but will now eat the hikari micro pellets. They won't touch the dried brine shrimp either, unless I crush it...

They ignore any large pellet foods. I've tried the shrimp pellets.

Well - I'm happy they'll eat the flakes and shrimp now - because I too really worried about the lack of nutrients in a diet solely of worms.

So now I can treat the bloodworms as a treat day instead of as an every day event.

I've recently switched Horizon and Amir to three feedings a day.
Advanced pellets in the morning, freeze dried blood worms in the afternoon, and betta bites pellets before bed.
