How much should I feed my betta?

    My betta is a few months old, I'm not completely sure because I don't know how old he was when I got him.

    He seems pretty small for a betta.

    The store said 4 pellets a day, but that seems pretty small.

    4 pellets seem fine to me. That's how much I used to feed my betta. 2 in the morning and 2 at night. Also, it's best to feed a variety of different foods to your fish. A mix of frozen foods, pellets and flakes. Bettas love frozen bloodworms, my betta liked frozen brine shrimp as well.

    I agree with Brandon, four seems fine. I actually only feed mine three pellets once a day in the morning. :)

    Also, the reason he may seem small is because his fins are a little rough looking, could that be it?

    He may just be young or a small breed I just remember my other Bettas being larger.

    I usually feed him 3 or 4 midday.

    I usually feed mine 2 or 3 pellets in the morning and then 2-3 at night.
