I got my plakat betta fish (male), Pluto, a two weeks ago. He lives in a planted 23 L (or 6 gal) tank with a tiger nerite snail and within the first couple of days he'd already started to build a bubble nest, so I'm pretty certain he's in good health. So here's the issue: My spoiled little fishy will only eat food that I give to him from my finger. It's no problem for me to sit down and do this every day - in all honesty, I think it's a fun way to interact with him and it means I'm able to control how much food he eats in a day quite easily. However, I'm worried about getting other people to take care of him, if I go on vacation, both because I don't really want other people sticking their fingers in my fish tanks, but also because I don't think many of my friends and family members would actually want to do it. So does anyone know how I can get Pluto accustomed to eating "floating foods"? Maybe getting some live food? He doesn't seem to care for the flakes I presented to him at first, but I currently feed him dried shrimp and frozen bloodworms and am currently searching the web for some nice pellets, since he doesn't want the flakes. Thanks in advance for the help!
