I just got my betta yesterday and i havent seen it eat yet or his food disapeare...is that normal??
help please i dont want ...
I haven't kept bettas before, but I'll give you the advice that I can:
1. Get a thermometer and check the exact water temperature, it may be that the water isn't warm enough for him and you will need to get a heater.
2. Do a lot of research - there are a lot of betta threads here.
3. Get a test kit to test your water parameters
4. Regular water changes, adding dechlorinator and adding water at the correct temperature.
If he still doesn't eat, perhaps try feeding something different. What are you feeding at the moment? Flakes?
