Hi everyone. I've been hanging around the forums for a few months now, but I just registered. I've got 5 betta fish, and my newest girl, Eldradine, is becoming a bit of troublemaker.
I just got Eldradine, a cellophane CT female, this past weekend. Since I got her, she's eaten twice, and only Hikari freeze dried bloodworms. I've tried to get her to eat NLS Small Fish Formula, Omega One Betta Buffet pellets and Aqueon Betta pellets. She just stares at them like they're little intruders floating in her water.
My four other bettas (2 males, 1 female and 1 juvenile) love the pellets and I've never had a problem feeding them. None of my other bettas will eat flake food, so I don't have any on hand.
I'm wondering if there is anything I could do to the pellets to make them more appetizing to my ghost fish. Or alternatively, should I try to feed her flake food? In that case, since I have no experience with flakes, what are the best brands of flakes?
I'll try anything to get this little girl to eat!
