Live Daphnia magna

Just out of curiosity, how much/how often can live Daphnia magna be fed to bettas?

I work in a water laboratory and have access to them whenever I want to bring some home for my fish, but am not sure how much I should let them eat and how often it is okay to feed them? Anyone know? Thanks!

Yes,you can feed your bettas with those.How much depends on your betta size.
You are lucky to be able to get daphnia,i can't even find any here.

Thanks! I have a very sick betta and I am pretty much letting him eat what he wants right now because he hasn't eaten pellets in a while. Will bettas overeat when fed live foods? I have a smaller betta also and I plan on giving him daphnia every other day or so with pellets in between.

I culture Daphnia magna and Ceriodaphnia dubia at work for toxicity testing and throw out a lot of perfectly good bugs so if I can put them to use that is awesome.
