I am new to this forum and just joined up for some advice. My friend is moving to Singapore in a couple of months and she is giving me her Betta fish to take care of since she can't take him with her.
She has currently gone over to Singapore just for this one week and gave me the fish to look after for the time, and then later on I will get it permenantly.
I have only ever had previous experience with fish when I was about 7 years old and we had some Goldfish, so needless to say I'm worried about my lack of experience for caring for them.
I have so far had the fish three days of this week and I am worried that he is not eating as much as he should. My friend gave me a packet of tiny little pellets and said just to put about three in each day, but so far, out of all three days I have only seen him eat one.
He seems to put the food in his mouth, then spit it out again and swim away. Is this normal or should I be worried that he isn't eating enough?
Like I said I don't have much experience in this field, but I want to do my best to care for my friends pet while she can't be with him so any advice at all is very appreciated.
