Okay so my betta Scuito has been having a hard time eating for a while now. At first he just couldn't eat the whole pellets so I started giving him flakes. But yesterday I noticed how gross it was making his water (lot more algae than when he was getting pellets) so I started splitting the pellets in half. Today I noticed he was having a hard time eating the bigger pellets.
It just looks like they don't fit in his mouth and if they do he can't swallow them, the stay right in sight (you can watch him try to swallow them & they never move).
I'm worried about him because he looks significantly smaller than he was over the beginning of the summer (this started probably 2 or 3 months ago). He looks skinny
for a fish. He used to be the big one out of my VT boys & now he's the smallest.
