Hi! So I noticed your reblog of feeding pet fish a variety of food, however, my betta doesn't like anything but the pellets. I've tried every food at my local pet store and he just spits them out. Any advice.

Yeah, betta fish can be picky a lot of the time! It can take numerous introductions before they might try eating a new food. A couple things I can think of…

If you’re feeding freeze-dried bloodworms, etc., try soaking them in some water from the aquarium first to soften them up & see if maybe he doesn’t like the dried texture.

You can also try soaking new foods in garlic juice - it’s good for their immune system & can sometimes get their interest to try a new food.
