My sweet little betta seems to hate betta pellets. I tried crushing, soaking, and switch brands but still he spits them out. He loves his flakes, Betta Buffet. The only problem is that I don't know how much is too much. I have to hold a flake and let him nibble from my hand so that it doesn't sink. Once it sinks, he has no interest in it. So what do you all think? One..Two, Three flakes? Betta Pellets are just so much easier. Oh I tried offering freeze dried blood worms. He ate one but spit out two. How can I vary his diet when he is so darn picky?
