I had the same problem once...

Betta fish are really picky eaters, and most pet shops "feed" them pellets or flakes. Truth is these fish rarelyeat these foods and will only do so if they're desperate; they can be trained to but why waste your time when you can give them something they'll eat right away? Try to buy live foods, if you can't look around for some freeze-dried versions, you can also feed your Betta ants (and their eggs) and house flies.

AnswerYou can try soaking the pellets before you put them in the tank for feeding. You could also try flakes that float, or blood worms but don't overfeed on blood worms though, it'll make him to FAT. They love blood worms! AnswerTry giving your Betta another type of food. They hate eating flakes and sometimes pellets. Other brands of pellets might work. Betta's love frozen, or better yet, freeze-dried, food like blood worms or plankton. Or if you can't get your Betta anything else, try skipping his feeding for two, only two days, and he'll be so hungry he'll be able to eat his nasty food even if he's picky. AnswerBlood worms are definitely the most efficient and reliable way to feed your Betta. The little pellets are fine but soon, the fish will get sick of eating them.
