If you are feeding everyday, they should be passing waste everyday.

What would be reasons that they are not passing waste daily? (even if they are fed every day?)

Bettas should poop about as often as you do.

Some types and brands of foods are more constipating than others. Also the more they eat, the more waste they produce.

What type of food do they get? How much do you give them at each feeding, and how often do you feed them?
