Question Crazy Hungry Fish

I know Betta's can be "piggies with fins" but this new little guy is a maniac. I've only had him for a couple of weeks and he is definitely still growing. He gets 4 pellets of NLS 2X day. (tonight I gave him 6) And he still goes wild when he sees me (which is often). I'm pretty sure he was pointing a fin at the jar on the counter holding a sign that said, "hey stupid human, i'm hungry"! Question: Will this stop when he is full grown? Am I feeding him enough? It is hard to watch. I had to turn his light out! Thanks!

You should be really happy to know that your betta is really healthy! You have nothing to fear as long as you feed him 4-5 good quality pellets twice a day (8-10 a day).

All bettas act like that; at least all the bettas I have owned. Completely normal. It's their instinct to each as much as they can since the don't know when their next meal is (at least in the wild) . :)
