4 days ago, I purchased a Half-Moon Betta from a local pet store. After a little trouble with his water temperature, we finally got him all settled down his bowl. He seems happy and healthy, he likes to hide in his plastic plants and sea shells, expect for one thing: He won't eat. He just chews on it for a couple seconds then spits it back out.
I did some research online and read that the food might be too big for him. So I crushed it up, and he still spit it back out. I also read that he might not like the taste, so I should buy him new food. But my parents won't buy him anymore til this is gone, and I'm broke, so I can't buy him any.
So here's my question: How can I make him eat it? If he gets hungry enough, will he eventually eat it on his own?
He's another question I have: Is there anything Bettas should not eat that I should look for in the ingredients when buying his food?
And in case you're wondering, we're feeding him Top Fin Color Enhancing Betta Bits.
