Over-fed for one day

So long story short my betta usually gets 4 pellets a day but today he got 8. Will he be okay?

Should be. Just don't feed him tomorrow at all. If he gets bloated, don't feed him for 2 days. :) Little gluttons they are

A friend of mine just did that today as well, fed too many pellets at once, because they are soo small, she thought he'd need more..oh boy, so she dropped in like 7-8 she said, and I told her the same thing just don't feed anymore for the rest of the day, and watch to see if he bloats, then only 2 pellets tommorow, but this is a fish that was eating flakes, so when he got a taste of some good food, he couldn't get enough, but if he ate 8 pellets, at once that is enough for the day:)

Finnfinn! How could you? :0 JK. :P He should be fine. As long as he's not going to be bloated, he's fine. If he is, fast until he doesn't look fat.

I fed mine 12 one time to see if he would stop eating. That was MONTHS ago. He's still alive now, no issues other than his missing fins from RED.
