Hector won't et pellets =\

I think I spoiled him with Bloodworms for the first few days because I didn't have pellets. Ever since I got them he refuses to eat them. If anything he chews it up and spits it back out. I try and feed him 2 or 3 pellets twice a day and supplement with Bloodworms one or two times a week. He really loves the worms but now refuses to touch the pellets. Should I take away the Bloodworms until he starts eating his pellets?

Just keep offering him the pellets. When he realizes that's all he's going to get, he'll eat it. It's kind of like a kid who won't eat his veggies. lol

Try only pellets and no bloodworms for a while, if he still does not eat try betta flakes. Mine really like the Omega One betta buffet flakes.
