Hey guys!! I'm a brand new fish owner; I just got my little guy a few months ago. I had a few questions regarding feeding cycles. I know they can last a few days without food, but how often should I feed them and how much? I use those small betta pellets, and I've been giving him 2-3 twice a day. Is that okay? I don't want to kill him by overfeeding. Secondly, I'm going on vacation for a week. I don't particularly want to invest in one of those automatic fish feeders (I prefer feeding him myself!), so what should I use to feed him while I'm away? I've heard about those fish feeding blocks, but I'm worried that he won't eat the pellets. Either he won't find them, or he'll be too good for them. What should I do? Thank you for any help, y'all.
