Hi. I have a female betta in my community tank of guppies, tetra and snails. She's been in there for a little over a week now and she hasn't eaten since the day I got her. The reason I got her is because she was attacked by a male betta, who was carelessly put into a sorority tank of females at my local petstore. mad . But I've tried Betta Pellets, flakes, frozen bloodworms, freeze-dried bloodworms and freeze-dried brineshrimp. She'll put the pellets in her mouth, swallow them, then a few minutes later spit them back up, she does the same for the frozen bloodworms. The pellets are pretty small too, so it's not a size issue, I even tried crushing them up. She wont go after the flakes or freeze-dried food. I'm kinda worried since it's been a little over a week now since I last seen her eat, and she's been a little less active lately too. Do any of you know how to make her eat? Or does she have something wrong with her? Her stripes were gone all week, but the came back yesterday and hasn't left since.
