  1. bratty betta only eats flakes

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm not new to owning bettas but it has been a few years since I have taken care of one. It's been one month now and my new betta has been giving me so many problems! He began to spit out the pellet food as soon as I brought him home, which I never experienced with my previous bettas. I...
  2. Giant HMPK - picky eater

    Betta Fish Care
    I bought a Giant MHPK a few weeks ago. He was in a tank with about a dozen platys of varying species and colorations because of his size. Due to him being fin-nibbled at by some of the braver platys, I bought him for the other half of my 10 gallon planted, divided tank. So far, he's settled in...
  3. baby betta only eats garlic :T

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a few older tanks with nothing but plants and snails in them. It drove my friends nuts to see pretty planted fish tanks with no fish. So I was gifted Dennis, he is not as tiny and young as other baby bettas I have seen at Petco, he just looks like a smallish female betta at this point. I...
  4. SPOILED: Ignores pellets, eats worms & brine shrimp

    Betta Fish Care
    I've had a few betta fish over the years and never had one this spoiled before. My buddy Steve ignored pellets from day one. I tried to push the issue for a few days, but the most he would do was chomp on it and spit it back out (These aren't huge pellets either. Previous bettas just crunched...
  5. Betta attacks food, chews, then spits it out

    Betta Fish Care
    This is the first time I've noticed this behavior. He normally eats well, but I've had him for about a week. He seems otherwise healthy and has a nice bubble nest going. Swims around, very active. I've got him on the same pellets my other boy is on (Top Fin Color-Enhancing Betta Bits). I...
  6. What would be a good diet for a fussy eater?

    Betta Fish Care
    So, recently I got yet another Betta. (I'm at five now, it never ends.) Her name is Eclipse, and she is a yellow CT. Thing is, she's too small for new life spectrum pellets. For the first few days I was able to get her to eat Mysis, until 4 days ago when she started to not be interested in...
  7. Help, my Betta isn't eating correctly.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I just got my new Betta fish about a week ago and my Betta fish won't eat flakes, pellets, except for the freeze dried blood worms I bought for him. I also tried mixing in some of the flakes and blood worms together but no luck with the flakes . :cry: I've been researching for hours and I can't...
  8. Feeding problems for new betta

    Betta Fish Care
    So I bought my first elephant ear betta, and let me say he is just beautiful. But for the first week and half he refused to eat. I tried 3 different types of food and I've never owned a betta fish that wasn't a pig. I finally got him to eat and I was so happy, but he will only eat blood worms...
  9. What do you guys feed your fish?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi guys, it's been quite a long while. Not sure if anyone remembers me. ;) Anyways, I have an issue. My betta (Robert) used to refuse to eat frozen bloodworms when I offered them to him. I tried again a few weeks ago, and now HE WON'T EAT ANYTHING ELSE. (this fish is infuriating) I was going...
