My Blue Betta Splenden would not eat. It spits out the pellets especially formulated for Bettas, which were his favorite, won’t even look at any other type of flake or granule.
My research in books and the internet tells me it is merely spoilt, acting up, and will eat as soon as it is hungry. Bettas can apparently go for weeks without food.
Mine hasn’t eaten in a week now, and looks just a tiny bit smaller, or it is my imagination, maybe. I can’t believe it isn’t hungry. It used to eat up to eight pellets a day (yes, I kept count *blush*) and now it hasn’t eaten any in eight days.
Tomorrow, I go in search of different food types, see what I can tempt him with. Sigh,a 2-inch fish is stringing my along by the nose, and I’m hoping it is indeed stringing me along and not actually sick.
Does anyone else obsess over their pets as I do?
