Is he still Active and not Lethargic? It might be because he's new. Some Betta Fish even won't eat until a Week, or 2. As long as he doesn't look sick, he'll be fine. What Temperature is it exactly?

72 is unfortunately on the cool side. Is it possible for you to put its tank at a warmer location?

If he doesn't have a heater, get him one, even if he does eat, he will have troubles trying to digest it so you will have many problems with it. Depending on the size of your tank I can give you a wattage of heater to get. So just say...

What brand of pellets are you offering and what type of bloodworm, frozen, live, or freezedried?

I just bought myself a bottle of new life spectrum. I also have Hikari pellets at home and some flakes from Nutrafin. I like to give my bettas a variety. They get the occassional freeze dried blood worm once a week. I dont believe in fasting days, lolol, only cos I like feeding my fish.

You should get the betta specific pellets as those are formulated for carnivors. Unlike goldfish which eat both plant and animal (bug) matter, Betta fish are strictly meat eaters. A good one to start wpuld be Hikari's biogold betta pellets
