how much to feed?

The instructions say to feed 3-4 pellets 2-3 times a day based on how big he is, but he's not fully grown.

So I feed him 4 pellets 2 times a day and then a few times a week I substitute freeze dried bloodworms for the pellets - he always eats everything I give him and is very active.

How can I tell if I am feeding him too much or too little?

just dont put more than he can eat in a few minutes 2 or 3, bettas will keep eating i think. If u overfeed its gonna lead to him getting constipated i think, which is a whole list of problems

Bettas will stop eating when they are full..They are really small and people tend to overfeed them..just give him one or two..and when he eats them give another one or two..then stop and repeat that later in the day or evening...I feed mine a variety of different foods..they seem to like these: Tiny peices of boiled egg white, Peas, frozen Bloodworm, Frozen beefheart, Betta flake, Freeze dried Krill ( once in a great while..I think these are like Betta Potato chips..Junk food)..just don't over do it on the meat , that makes them constipated...and remember ..tiny bits at a time..they are just little guys.

i think your feeding him just fine. if you find alot of poo in your tank you could try taking 1 pellet away from each meal.
