So, I got my new betta a few days ago, he's in a temporary bowl until his tank finishes cycling. He still bolts every time I get near the bowl, which makes it impossible to feed him. He hasn't eaten at all since he's been with me, and I don't know how long it was since the pet store last fed him. I've even tried standing far enough from the bowl and to the side that he can't really see me, wait until he comes up to the surface, and toss in a pellet, but he sees my arm go up and runs for it. I know its normal for bettas to by shy for awhile, but is there anything I can do to get him more comfortable with his new surroundings?
