I usually feed my betta the size of its eyeball. I think that 3 minutes is too much. Do you put the food in water for it to become fully sized?

I had to get my betta in a plastic breeding box at food time because she would gorge herself until she looked like she was going to explode. Then I could feed her the correct amount. That is usually a issue in a community tank with bettas is they eat way too much.

Dont feed him for a few days either see if that helps. Let the other fish eat all the food before you let him out. Mine was easy to catch, she pretty much just swam in there. She was already up top. She got to know the box as her food time...lol
