My alpha, Sakura, of a sorority of 5 is a pretty, gorgeous, red veiltail whom I treasure. =3 she's awesome. Recently, her sister Natsuko died :( I hope she doesnt notice she's gone. Anyways, for 2 days now she refuses to eat!!! She is soooo hyper, healthy looking, plays, and explores. She just wont eat! She isnt legarthic at all. She is usually a PIG eattin everything I drop in the tank without sharing sometimes, lolz. I have tried to feed her daphnia, freeze dried bloodworm, NLS pellets, annd beefheart. She eats and then spits it out. 0.0 all my other girls pig out and eat anything. I recently took the betta bulbs out because they were all playing and tearing at the roots, I hope she hasnt acquired a taste for those since they are not in her natural betta diet @_@ vegan betta would be weiiirrrd! LOLz She surfaces and sticks her mouth outa the water like she's hungry when I feed everyone. She even wags her fins!!!
Idk if she is being picky or if she is bloated. I put a tsp of epsom salt in the tank incase she's constipated. She does look a lil tubbier than usual. Do constipated even bettas eat? I hope she isnt upset about Natsuko being gone/missing to where she wont eat anything. Its sad cuz that was her actual sister- as in blood but not from the same spawn. Does anyone know what is up with Sakura and how can I get her to eat without removing her?
Here is a pic of her if this helps :/ I just took this:
