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 find my answer!

Well my Berta will not tuch the blood werms I gave him but he eats flakes and pellets. Try making your betta jump for the blood werms. and once he can do that replace the blood werm with pellets. Or your betta may only like blood werms

you cannot just feed him bloodworms. that would be like humans only eating dessert.

It can take up to a fews weeks for new bettas to eat.

Stick with pellets. Every feeding time offer one pellet at a time. If he eats one then offer another. If he doesn't eat it then remove it from the tank and try again tomorrow. Eventually he will eat it. You can also try soaking the pellets in garlic juice since garlic tastes good to bettas (microwave a clove of garlic until you see liquid).
