Sometimes they will do that, just give her time. When she realizes that that's her food, she'll start eating it.

She doesn't even notice when it is feeding time. All of my other fish are going crazy and she is just swimming along happily in her tank. When I put the pellets in her tank she doesn't notice.
I'm kinda thinking she might respond better to something like blood worms, she is really really young looking (probably an inch long from tip of caudal fin to nose).

Some of my new bettas did that too, than eventually put two and two together and started eating. They can survive without food for a week. When did you get her?

Its pretty normal for them to not eat for the first few days.

If you do research the thing betta love the most are blood worms. I'm not telling you to go out and get "live" ones if you're squeemish or strapped for cash, but there are places online (even Amazon) where you can buy freeze-dried ones. This is their favorite food since they're carnivores, it usually lasts a really long even if you get just a little .4 oz jar. Things like pellets (from what I've been told) are usually only good as a vitamin boost.

Bloodworms should only be fed as a once or twice a week treat.

She actually ate a small pellet last night. I fed her a bloodworm right before. They will be a treat

That's great news! Like DQ said, bloodworms should only be given as a treat.

Maybe she's getting used to the pellets now.
