    Okay I need to know if I am doing this correctly!! I feed him once a day. I feed him 2 mini pellets and 1 blood worm! That's all!

    Do you feed blood worms very day? When I had a betta I only fed him 2-3 pellets or flakes a day. Once or twice a week frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp.

    I'd normally use pellets as a staple food and bloodworms as a treat only once a week.

    I fed pellets once a day, three daily. I've been meaning to get bloodworms as a treat for my fish, though.

    I do 3-4 pellets twice a day, in the morning and at night. Mind you that should be regulated depending on the size of the betta. The stomach of a betta is roughly the size of their eye apparently. So they dont require as much when compared to other fish.
    Good luck with you betta buddy!

    Hmm, so am I feeding too much? I feed 3 pellets twice daily, so 6 total per day.

    I've been meaning to get bloodworms and brine shrimps for awhile too. How do you guys feed them? How many do you feed?

    Thats about right, I feed 6-8 pellets a day, split into two portions.

    I used to feed my betta about six pellets a day, three in the morning and three at night. But then I switched him over to just once in the morning, three pellets, when I learned that it wasn't necessary for him to eat so much so often.

    Okay, I trust you and Brandon more than myself so I think I'll do the same now.
