EDIT: Never mind got him eating :)

I have a fluval spec 2.6G and I have a betta in it (I just got him yesterday). I have not been able to coax him to the surface for food. Any suggestions? I'm too used to keeping Mbuna. They're the easiest fish to feed...

EDIT: I dropped in 4 frozen (thawed) bloodworms. Once he realized there was food in the water he did eat the pieces that were floating around. Still can't get him to the surface to make things easier though... Am I just too spoiled with mbuna?

Is he hiding or just chilling ? Since you just got it sometimes they just take a while to clue in. Blood worms are usually a great way to get attention with them.

I miss having beta for sure

No he's just chilling 99% of the time. Likes to hang out where there's absolutely no water movement, or get sucked against the slits of the overflow. There's maybe a 1/2" per second current in there if that.

He did end up cluing in. I had to be patient and wait for him to swim near the surface but the bloodworms that did come into his field of view were eaten.

I bought Hikari "Jumbo" bloodworms expecting them to actually be jumbo. They're just regular size bloodworms! Sneaky, sneaky Hikari...
