    You'll have better luck giving him bloodworms (either freeze-dried or frozen). Though I've seen a couple of my female bettas take flakes, I think bettas in general mainly prefer bloodworms. You can also try the betta bio gold pellets.

    I feed mine nothing but freeze dried bloodworms. He loves it. My previous betta ate flakes and wouldn't touch pellets, but the worms are much more nutritious and also a more natural part of their diet, so that's what I stick with.

    I keep my Betta's tank at that temp. Mine also won't eat anything other than Betta Bio-Gold pellets by Hikari.

    I alternate between freeze-dried bloodworms and the betta biogold pellets. The pellets are great. I had a veiltail years ago that was fed only that, and he lived for 4 years. Even then he only died because one of the cats knocked his bowl over.

    like it was said earlier, it might take him a couple days to get comfortable. i had a betta once that would ignore the pellets and chow down on flakes. some bettas just have different preferences.
