I've herd of fasting but should I , like feed my betta 6 days a week and then not feed him the 7 day. Or should I feed him all week long?

A lot of people fast their bettas for a day, so they can digest all their food and help prevent any bloating. Bettas can go a while without food, so you aren't hurting them :)

Your choice.

If you feed higher quality food you don't have to feed as much, but if feeding lower quality food you will want to feed a little extra so they meet their nutritional needs.

Fasting a day won't hurt them.. nor will not fasting. It's each owner's choice in the end.

Edit.. bloating tends to happen when overfed low quality foods. A day of fasting won't really have them "catch up" on their digestion.. it's like us or any other animal, we don't fast ourselves or dogs, etc.. :)
