Betta fish doesn't appear sick, but won't eat

rose62December 1, 2010

I bought my betta fish nearly a week ago. He appears to be a very happy fish, swimming around often and exploring his tank. He does not show any obvious signs of sickness, as far as I can tell, but he refuses to eat. He just seems entirely uninterested in the food that I offer him. Is it possible that the air pump scatters the food before he gets a chance to eat it, or does he simply not like the food and I should try something else? For the record, I'm feeding him BettaMin Tropical Medley. Thank you for your help!

Try feeding live foods and change the dry to another product designed for bettas.
