feeding

my fish has just recovered from maybe swim bladder? constipation? thanks to this site, he is nearly back to normal, I think I caursed it by overfeeding so I,m going to feed him twice a day but only a small amount, I have Hikari micro pellets, I think 3 at each feed, but the pellets are very small. I can hardly see one, does this sound right?

Yes, start him slow.
I would go for 2 pellets twice a day and then increase the quantity.
Just monitor him to make sure he's passing the food and make him exercise by flaring a few minutes a day. Sometimes it helps.

Gradual increase, as mentioned above.. micro pellets you can get away with 8-10 a day spread between two meals and be safe.
Sometimes it's too easy to over feed them.. they are great little beggars.
