Hello, I am pretty new here. I just get a betta from Petsmart about 2 weeks ago, he is a blue/turquoise twintail halfmoon named Boba. My tank is on the small side at 2.5 gallons, so sorry about that, I didn't realize that it was the bare minimum until I came across this forum. The tank has a filter and I added a moss ball, and I do a 50% water change once a week. Boba also has a rock cave and plants for him to take naps in. I feed him twice a day, at the same time every day. I've been feeding him 2 Aqueon BettaFood pellets each time. I noticed that most, if not all, of the pellets just ended up at the bottom with the gravel, and don't get eaten. I would see Boba sorta attack the pellet but then spit it out, or just ignore it entirely. I read some of the care tips on this forum and figured that maybe the pellets were too big for Boba to eat, so I started breaking them into smaller pieces with a toothpick. Boba seemed to eat since I started doing this, but this morning I saw him attack the pellet pieces and spit them out again. But Boba is still swimming around a lot, he isn't lethargic or anything. Are the pellets still too big, does Boba just not like the pellets, is he going to eat them later, am I just massively overfeeding him, or all of the above????
