Now it's once a day one pellet a day. Every betta is different, but I know if I feed mine several blood worms and anti-parasite pellet, it would make him a fat boy
And remember that the size of their stomachs is about the size of their eye.

are the blood worms freeze-dried? my Cup can't eat them any more. they bloat up in his tummy. i'd say fast him, and feed him a blanched pea, but those aren't supposed to be good for bettas. it's worth a shot, but.... what's that food that works like peas? starts with a D....

You're probably thinking of daphnia. You can find it frozen of freeze dried, and it works as a natural laxative for carnivorous fish. It's nice to have on hand if you can find it.

there's no visible pineconing. it's either severe constipation and bloating, or a tumor.

i think in this case, frozen would work best. it's worth a try, at least, to make sure he's not bloated and constipated, ya know? and, yes. x3 that's what i was thinking about.
