    Zen is doing much better :) He's swimming fine, and he seems to LOVE his new food. Thank you for all your help!

    I would.. start by giving him 1 piece in the morning, 1 in evening.. that way he recovers from the fasting and gets used to his new food gently. After a few days of doing that I would feed him 2-3 pellets of the buffet twice a day, as they are small and shouldn't cause any digestive problems.

    I just read the ingredients on the Hikari...I must have gotten the new recipe, it's all wheat germ and dough-y stuff. When he feels better and I stop fasting him, should I switch him all the way over to the Betta Buffet?

    Hikari had recently changed their ingredients from what I understand, and actually went down in quality. Unsure if maybe last time you bought it, you got the new recipe which could affect him. I use the Omega Betta Buffet with great success on even my pickiest of eaters.

    I'm going to eventually switch him over to the Betta Buffet, I'm just waiting for the Hikari to run out.

    I use Hikari Bio-gold, (2 pellets once a day) and then a week or so ago I gave him a bite of Formula One Betta Buffet pellets.

    I use a gallon jug when I change their water, so I can do that easily :]
    Should I give him 100% water changes without the salt to keep it really clean? It'd be easy since I lowered the water to only a gallon.
