Not eating

Hi
My female betta called sparkle is not really eating, i have had her for nearly two weeks but she seems to turn her nose up at everything i give her, i have tried betta flakes, pellets and bloodworms. Both my males ( one who i got from the same person), will eat anything. I have now ordered her some of the same pellets that the person i got her from fed her on. Is she just too fussy?

try soaking the pellets in garlic juice. I just take a bit of a garlic clove, mince it up add a bit of tank water and let some pellets soak in it. My betta really enjoys that, and its a good natural anti parasitic too!

My betta didn't for a whillllleeee after I got him. So she could possibly be still adjusting.

Thank you i will try that, fed her this morning with the pellets that the person who i got her from fed her and she is still not interested. Its strange as the boys are always waiting for their food at the top of the tank when they see me, but she just doesn't seem bothered. If anyone else has any ideas i would be grateful to hear them. Thank you
