Oh, thank goodness for this thread! Back when I had Moonlight, I'd give him two pellets twice a day, but now that I'm getting a new one... I'm not too sure. :)

You know, until I came on this forum, I never realised how big an issue feeding bettas could be.

Amen to that... I could add a few other things to that.

I stopped feeding flakes when one of my fish got swimbladder problems from it.

I feed my adult male bettas once day. I started doing so after a fish vet advised me to do this. She said their digestive system needs a rest between feedings I was feeding 3x daily. My sorority females are getting fed twice daily with 2 day with just once daily. I feed them more often to be sure to keep the peace. The males do get the correct amount for the food they are eating. NLS they get more since it's tiny and for Omega they get less because the pellets swell up alot.

I feed my bettas about 3-5 NLS pellets per day, and I usually give them a day or two to fast each week.

Has anyone ever had a picky betta? My one double tail boy won't eat anything I feed him anymore. He used to love his freeze dried brine shrimp every couple of days and now he turns his nose up at it. Even with his pellets he's being picky and only munching on them every second day. Before this he was a little piggy. He doesn't seem to be losing weight or showing any kind of illness though so I'm thinking his tastes have just matured lol has anyone else ever had this problem with their fish?
