Most generic tropical flakes contain alot of vegetable oils and fats.
Vegetable stuffs can cause serious constipation in Betta's....
Try get some Tetra Betta flakes, their high in protein, easy to digest and amazing betta food.
You could try stopping feeding the tropical flakes for a few days...
When your betta gets hungry enough he WILL eat the pellets.
Soak the betta pellets in a bit of tank water for a minute before feeding..
