I got my crown tail male betta about 8 or 9 days ago and I'm starting to get really concerned. I'm trying to feed him every other day, 3 pellets. The day after I got him, I tried to feed him, but he just spit them out. He grabs the pellet, nods his head, swims around for a minute, and then spits it out. Sometimes he spits it out immediately. Once it comes out it starts sinking to the bottom, and he'll chase it for a bit and then loses interest. 2 days later, I tried feeding him again, and he actually did well, he spit one out but I kept offering food until he was able to hold down 3 pellets. Ever since then, he's eaten maybe one or two pellets. Some pellets are pretty big and some are tiny, so I tried offering just the small ones and he spits those out too! At first I wasn't too worried, but now that I've had him for over a week, I'm getting concerned. He's still very active so I don't think it's harming him yet, but he must be starving! My last betta always gobbled up the Top Fin pellets from petsmart but this guy just won't have it. I know petsmart feeds the Aqueon pellets to the bettas in the store, should I try those next? And if he keeps refusing the Top Fin pellets and won't eat the Aqueon ones, what should I try next?
