Don't worry!! I've had some that won't eat for, like a week!! Try a Bloodworm. They are irresistible to bettas!!!!

My first and third bettas weren't interested in food for about 3 days. Now I'm surprised they don't eat my fingers when I drop the pellets in.

Nothing to worry about.

I've had mine about... 5 or 6 days now, and he hasn't eaten yet. Sometimes he puts it in his mouth and then spits it back out. He may do this several times before it sinks to the bottom. Does that mean he doesn't like the food, or is he not eating just because of his new life situation?

Sometimes it takes awhile for them to get used to their new home. Sometimes you have to switch brands of pellets to find one they like because they can be very picky! lol

My betta will eat any type of fish food I put in there, in about a secound :p He even ate like a pig the first day I got him thats why I named him Nibbler :) So yeah all fish are different, and bettas can be really picky eaters. He just needs to get used to his home, then he will eat.
