Is it weird?

Is it weird that both of my male bettas don't like blood worms?

No, it's not weird but it may also be an indication that the food went bad. See if any other fish will eat them.

I feed my community tank these blood worms all the time. They love it. Just not my bettas and I thought they were known to love blood worms also.

Then they just may be too large for your Bettas. But as I said, NO it's not weird. My Bettas won't eat freeze dried bloodworms but will eat FD Tubifex (which is larger). Go figure

I've never tried anything else besides the worms and their pellets. What else could bettas take as a snack?

There are a number of frozen foods you could try such as Brine Shrimp, Mysid shrimp, beefheart, lobster eggs, etc. except for the lobster and brine, the others you may need to chop into smaller pieces for your Betta. I actually find these foods a bit better than the freeze dried ones in many cases. When all else fails however, pellets it is

Hmm well I'll try one of those. Thank you.

Do you think females bettas can live in a community tank?
