Question Picky Eater

Ok so I've had my female Betta for a week now and she doesn't want to eat anything except bloodworms! I've tried giving her pellets and flakes but she just looks at them and swims away. I don't think she can live on bloodworms alone. What should I do?

Fish often won't eat at first when they are getting used to a new home. If you want to get your fish eating pellets, try feeding pellets and remove after 2 minutes if they aren't eaten. Don't keep giving bloodworms until you get them eating other fish food unless you want to feed just bloodworms. Your fish can go a few days without eating. Many of us feed our bettas for 6 days and fast for one day. Good luck! :)

I hope it's just a phase she is going through.. I want her to start eating soon! She seems hungry but whenever I offer her food, she rejects it. My male has a gigantic appetite and seems to be hungry 24/7 xD Thanks for the advice!
