Thanks for your help. I did a 100% water change today and moved him with a little fish net into my extra tank then back.

I'm extremely thankful for these boards already. All 3 of my new Bettas spit out the pellets today. They all attempted to eat them and then spit them out over and over again. I guess they're either too big or they don't like them. I tried flakes and 2 out of the 3 ate those right away. Trial and error...

If they spit them, try, spit, try, spit then it means they do like them but cant gulp them for some reason (usually due to them been large). As far as i can tell they gulp their food whole and not chew.
You wouldn't believe how a betta can frown if he/she doesnt like his/her food if you haven't seen it with your own eyes.
I gave mine some tetra pond sticks i used for my tropical fish after i crashed them (just to check), he tried them, spat them came on the glass gave me a look that made almost piss myself and got away in a snobbish swimming pattern. And i was like: 'What the hell just happened here?'

If he doesnt like the food he will 'tell you'.

Yeah, I gathered maybe the pieces were too big right now for them to ingest. They keep trying to eat them and spit them back out each time. One of the three will carry around a piece in its mouth for a while, look at me and spit it out.

So far, two of the three are eating flakes great. The third fish hasn't eaten a thing since he was put into his tank two days ago. He's making bubble nests though. Ha!

That means he got acclimated. Perhaps he is a gourmet.

I switched to flakes a few months ago and have had no problem since.
