So, I have a picky betta on my hands, I think. I got Berry last Friday, and the following Sunday he greedily gobbled up around 5 pellets before refusing them. He didn't eat anymore that day. Monday he tried to eat his pellets, but when he did he bobbed his head up and down and spat them out. He didn't eat any more pellets that day, and I thought it was because he hurt his throat. The next day he didn't try for pellets at all. Yesterday (Wednesday) he tried to eat the pellets, but it looked like his mouth was too small or something. He just kept spitting them out. Now, today, he barely takes the pellet in his mouth before he spits it out and swims away, almost like he's disgusted.
Well, yesterday, he started eating the freeze-dried blood worms, and today he ate three like the world was going to end. I didn't want to give him more than three. I gave him one this morning and two about an hour ago.
I'm wondering what the best diet would be for a betta who refuses to eat pellets. I can't really do anything frozen since I am going to college soon and I won't have a freezer, and I know freeze-dried blood worms are really high in protein, and I don't want to worry about him being constipated. Any ideas?
