Hey there mate, Id give the water a pH test first and see if its ok. If it is u can always try to give him something else like blood worms for a change. And if that doesnt work maybe get ur self some drops that are made especially for bettas that have vitamins and minerals to help ur betta not to stress out.

What do you do if your betta fish is not eating?

Something must be wrong if your Betta is not eating. Check which of the following you are not doing. Bettas are tropical fish and need their water to be heated to around 78F. A minimum sized container for a single male should hold at least 3 gallons of water and a cycled filter should be running 24/7. Given the above necessary conditions the Betta should eat OK. If you are missing out on the requirements the Betta will get sick and die eventually.

It seems like your male betta is eating the eggswhat should you do?

During his looking after the ova and fry, a male Betta will 'mouth' them to keep them clean and also, if one falls away from the nest he will pick it up and mouth it before blowing it back into the nest. You may think he is eating them but he is not. He is simply cleaning them. In the case of a male actually eating his young you can pretty well assume that there was something wrong with the eggs or fry and he is simply doing his job.

Should you get a betta fish and are thay boring?
