Bought betta on friday. It is now Monday around the same time i bought it, so its been here for 3 solid days. It hasn't eaten other than the fruit fly that fell in yesterday and disappeared (assuming it was eaten). I have Omega 1 betta buffet, Tetra freeze dried blood worms, and today(monday) i bought Hikari frozen blood worms. I try and give it pellets at morning and at night and it doesn't eat and I've tried both types of bloodworms only once on different days. Can it be that pickey of an eater i should try something else?
Furthermore, he is only using one fin now and the other only to swim fast to another part of the tank. He just keeps the one against his body otherwise. Today he was also primarily staying in his castle. I just did a 50% water change and within the hour i noticed more use of his other fin and not staying in the castle anymore, being very active...i'm guessing he needed that so thats great, but what about his diet i don't want him to starve either.
