I had bought a little girl who was all grey with stress stripes and was really underweight. She is also small and my betta pellets are sometimes too big for her mouth. How can I get her to a normal size?

Good clean warm water and crushed pellets. It might take a while to get her to a good weight but it's do-able. Also maybe get some frozen brine shrimps and let her destroy one.

frozen blood worms helped my pint sized lady. Also, NLS grow helped ALOT. 50% protein and a bit higher in fat

Yeah, NLS pellets are tiny tiny. So the smaller fish have an easier time tackling them.

she is a cutie. Crush up normal sized pellets, or try frozen foods. Works like a charm!
