Lola will not eat....

I got Lola on 9-24 and I have tried Omega One Betta Buffet Flakes, as well as Top Fin Betta Bits, on the first day I gave her freeze dried blood worms and she ate them as fast as she could but the Betta Bits she will not even touch I even tried soaking them to make them softer for her and the flakes she will get one and then spit it out. She has not eat anything since the first day when I gave her the bloodworms and I am beginig to worry. Should I try some frozen krill or brine shrimp or something? If she will eat the frozen stuff is it ok to give it to her as her main food and freeze dried bloodworms as a treat? All of the other Bettas eat what ever I put in there tanks. She acts fine swimming and happy she just does not want to eat.

Have you tried Hikari betta bio gold yet? I would mix a pellet with anything you feed her that she'll eat. Blue Bonnet wouldn't touch bio gold so I got her Wardleys pellets. She ate those just fine, then I started mixing them. Now she eats both! lol

No I have not tried that brand I will look and see if they have it at petsmart. I did try putting the flakes in with a piece of blood worm thats when she took it in her mouth and then spit it out and would not touch it after that. Shes such a silly girl.

You just got her recently, right? Maybe she's still adjusting, though some Bettas just don't like flakes at all.

My local petsmart doesn't carry Bio Gold, but I was able to find it at Petco. Diego loves them. I can even hear him crunching them. My daughter gets a kick out of it. I guess I'm lucky with Diego. He'll eat anything.

Yeah, Petsmart doesn't seem to carry it anymore for some reason. I found a shop in the mall selling them when I got Felix.

I went to petsmart and they do not have it. If I get her frozen food to eat and she will eat it will that be ok as far as nutrition wise? Also what frozen food would be best to try?
