Hi everyone, I bought my ten year old daughter a betta fish on 11/23/11. I change his water every other day and add a couple of drops of betta H2O water conditioner. After doing this I feed him two to three betta pellets in the morning, but he just does not seem to be eating. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe you should try another food? What exactly are you feeding him?

Well, it could be a few things. I had a betta refuse food for 2 weeks after I bought him!!! Grr!! Some bettas have an adjustment period.

Also depends on the food. If the pellets are too big, or even they just do not like the type/brand...

And cold water can cause this too.
