Exclamation How much should I feed?

Hey all,

I'm a new betta owner, and I'm looking for some help. I bought my betta as a spur-of-the-moment investment for my dorm, but soon got very attached. When I bought my betta, the woman told me to feed him only two pellets once a day. However, the instructions say to feed 3-4 pellets sparingly twice a day. This is, in essence, a 6 pellet difference. I've searched through the internet and have found contradictory instructions, so I'm wondering what the proper number of pellets would be.

P.S: I've been feeding him Betta Bites.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Most people feed their bettas 2-3 pellets, twice a day.

I think you should just do 2 pellets per day. I used to have another betta ;'( and the food packaging said to do 8 pellets per day! I was a beginner, so I didn't know that was way too much. Then, I did 8 pellets per day and... he was over fed. Nobody wants their betta to be overfed!

I feed mine two pellets twice a day, so four pellets overall.

Mine get 3-4 pellets twice a day (usually 3 unless one is really small)... if I only gave my guys 2 pellets twice daily they would start biting their tails in protest.
