I usually feed my betta 3 tetra betta floating pellets twice a day. However im having a problem with detritus worms so im going to try anx cut down on his feeding . Will it be okay if i fed him 3 pellets total in a day, such as 2 in the morning and one 10 hours later.

As long as he eats all the pellets you give him, I don’t think you would have to cut down on his feeding. More frequent water changes might help. Does your betta have any tank mates?

How big is the tank? How much and what do you feed the nerites?

If they don’t eat it all, then maybe try giving them only what they can eat?
