My betta doesn't eat much, tried changing it's diet but doesn't seem to work. Plus, it jes sulks on the bottom of the tank most of the time...

Arielle Martin - I receantly learned that a bettas stomach is actually the size of it's eye. Maybe you are feeding him too much. There could also be a chance that he is sick. Try putting a mirror on the side of the tank to see if he perks up a bit. If he doesn't he is probably sick. - Sep 23, 2001
- When I brought my betta home, he wouldn't eat a thing-- I actually bought seven different kinds of food for him before he started eating regularly! He won't eat flaked food, or pellet food, or shrimp... he'll eat plankton but not the heads or the tails. The only things he really loves to eat are bloodworms. Picky little bugger... maybe you should try another flavor of food? - Oct 29, 2001

  3. I have had my betta for eight months now, and he has been fine up untill last week. I noticed that he has been sinking to the bottom of his bowl (that he shares with two neons) and he won't even come up to eat. I noticed that he has white spots under his mouth, and a little ways down his belly. I have no idea what's wrong with him, and I hope somehow, I can cure him. Yesterday, I took him out if the big bowl, and put him back in the little bowl that I got him in, hoping that he would come up toeat, because there is much less water in there, but no such luck. He just lies there. (3 ans, 2337 views)
