Feeding

How much am I suppose to feed my Betta a day. I have been trying to read to find out but I keep finding different anwsers. Right now I feed him 2 pellets in the morning and 3 at night but he still looks hungry. Should I be feeding him more?

I feed 2 in the late morning like @ 11am and them 2 more @ like 7pm, every once in a while i will throw in 1 as a treat

some ppl recommend feeding them 6 days and them not feeding them the 7th day .

but yea what your feeding is fine although i would just change it to 2 and 2 and throw in that extra one as a treat here n there

I feed mine about 3 pellets a day. And then on random days give them several bloodworms and only 1-2 pellets that day. And then also on random days, fast them.

definitely don't feed any MORE than that,
mine acts hungry too, they simply like food, just like us. P: but remember their stomachs are the same size as or smaller than their eye,
and it takes time to digest. feeding more will cause swim bladder, please don't ><
