Ok, wasn't sure... I thought you could feed those sorts of things like every day. But good to know. What pellets should I get? Also, I just got a tank heater, which I had been meaning to get, just hadn't had the funds yet.

Um, I know a lot of betta owners here use Hikari Bio-gold or Wardley's pellets. Both are good, I actually use both for Flair.

Oooh ok. So those once a day then, and then the frozen stuff once to twice a week?

You can feed the pellets twice a day, 2-3 pellets each time and the frozen stuff once or twice a week.

Then you came to a good place to get information!

A varied diet is good. Mine only get freeze dried foods and pellets, also one fasting day a week is part of a healthy diet for them.

Thanks, I'm definitely going to get some pellets after tomorrow since tomorrow will be his second day of fasting. His belly already doesn't look as bloated. He still just seems really tired. It seems he'll swim a little bit then rest, then swim then rest against the wall or on the thermometer or on the heater holder. I just hope other than the being bloated, that he's not sick as well.
