Question Question about Feeding.

I got Perseus today and I got him TopFin Color Enhancing Betta Bits (which are floating pellets), I was wondering If these are good for him, How many pellets should I feed him at a time, How many times a day I should feed him, and if I need to get him a different kind of food to feed him every other day or something like that. :)

It's an OK brand, but not the best. If they are small, 2 pellets 3x a day. Make sure to give him a varied diet and treats. Like, bloodworms 2x a week. You'd be bored from eating the same food won't you? ;P

Cool

If you just got him today, he probably will not eat. It takes a couple days for them to get settled in.

just give one and watch if he eats it.

i feed 2 - 3 pellets once a day but you could probably do 2 pellets twice a day, its also good for them to fast once a day per week

I recommend New Life Spectrum. It has good ingredients and doesn't have wheat gluten. Remember to fast one day a week. Don't get Hikari, they changed the ingredients and now it's bad. Avoid foods with wheat gluten! :)

It's OK. And fast means to not feed. Fasting helps to keep bloating away. It lets the digestive system clean itself out.
