Most bettas usually take awhile to get used to their new homes. He might not eat for awhile. Two of my bettas waited two weeks to begin eating, and they're fine now. Once he gets settled he'll probably start eating.

Thanks I forgot about that it's been awhile since I got a new Betta since Clyde lived so long.

I'm sure he'll be ok after he gets used to his new home. You might want to try a different brand of pellets and see if it akes any difference. I recommend Hikari betta bio gold.
