Question Betta poop?

Okay, this is a silly question...what does betta poop look like? I hadn't noticed a lot in Buddy's tank since I got him little over a week ago. I changed his pellets a few days ago to Omega One, and he loves them, no more pecking at or spitting out his food. Then today I noticed this at the bottom of his tank. Is this just normal poop? Maybe he wasn't really going well with the other food? I am doing his water change today, and picking up a turkey baster to remove..I can't afford a vacuum yet. Please answer if you can, thanks!

I don't want to freak you out, as long as he is active and eating well, he should be okay. Normal poop should be brown and stringy, looking like a freeze-dried bloodworm. how much are you feeding Buddy, and how often?

Doesn't it matter of what the color of the food is?

I am feeding 3 pellets in the am and 3 pellets in the evening. He is active, and looks like his normal self.

What color is his food? I feed my Betta NLS which is brown, and his poo is brown. :)

If the different colors are a throw off, could it be that he was "backed up" and the new pellets are allowing him to go finally? The difference in colors caused by the difference in the food?
