Yea as others pointed out, Bloodworms are like the equivalent of candy to humans. I actually did some research months ago and the posters here were dead on correct. Supposedly Bloodworms lack specific amino acids for sustained growth hence the "food as treat" philosophy.

Don't worry, he will eat when he's hungry enough! My betta waited more than a week before deciding to eat, and now he's become the greediest little thing I've ever seen! :P

Is he acting normal otherwise? I think mine was on strike for 2 days only (he was smallish at the time, so I guess got hungry quicker?), but since then, he will eat whatever I give him without putting up a fuss.

Good luck with yours. Just keep a close eye on him, as live food can sometimes cause other problems. That's why some people recommend frozen bloodworms, or having your own food culture to ensure no "contamination" or from a trusted reliable source.

there is a difference between feeding live blood worms and freeze-dried ..

live blood worms can be fed as a staple food .. meaning they replace pellets and are more nutritious then most pellets ..

freeze-dried blood worms are only to be fed as a treat .. because when these worms under go the freeze dry process they lose a lot of beneficial nutrients that they once had when they were alive
