Spitting his food up!

I feed my betta 4 pellets in the morning and in the afternoon he spits 1 or 2 of them back up! When he spits them back up they are whole and he stares at them while they float to the bottom, then he tries to eat them from the bottom. Sometimes when he tries to eat them from the bottom he spits them back out again. I feed him Top Fin Color Enhancing Pellets. Should I just get smaller pellets??

Thanks!

I think he has a smaller mouth then most. It's not uncommen. I recommend getting either New Life Spectrum small fish formula (which is so much better then their betta formula) or TetraBetta floating Mini pellets.

Ok, thanks so much! I want to give him something that will fatten him up, because he's so tiny.

Two of my bettas do this...They are pretty small little guys though! I make sure to break the pellets in half to make them a little easier to eat.

Try crushing the pellets before putting them in.
