Feeding schedule

Hi I just got a new male doubletail Betta today. I have the Hikari Betta Bio-Goldfish Food and a container of bloodworms. Info on feeding is confusing. Some sites say to feedit twice a day, and some sights they should be fed sparingly as they can go several days without being fed. I was planning on feeding it 2 pellets in the morining and 2 pellets at night and maybe once a week blood worms and fasting the betta 1 day a week also (which some sites say to do). Is this a good plan? How do you feed yours?

Hello! I am unfamiliar with the size of the hikari pellets.. I personally am not a fan of those pellets, they are no longer a good brand.

I feed my betta twice a day, she gets 4 omega one betta buffet pellets(about 1 mm in diameter) in the morning and 4 new life spectrum pellets for dinner. This may sound like a lot, but she is never bloated. She gets a frozen blood worm as a treat once a week and I fast her every sunday.

The Hikari pellets are real tiny, speck sized. I bought them on Amazon because everyone gave them a great review.

Well I guess it depends on your betta, my omega one pellets are 1 mm in diameter, NLS are slightly smaller.

The ingredients label is what I go by when choosing foods for my pets. Meats as first ingredients, and little to no fillers like wheat and such. :)

I suggest 3 pellets a day. 1 at morning/night. And 2 at morning/night. I suggest this for DTs because they're prone to bloat easily so feed as little as you can. It's just because all of their fins makes their body short. D: Remember variety is KEY to a healthy diet. Make sure to feed 2-3 bloodworms as well when you feed him for treats.

I have a VT and I just got Omega One Buffet Pellets... I'm gonna start feeding him 3 in the morning and 3 at night. Then take Sundays off of feeding and Monday will be blood worm day. :)

I figure as long as he doesn't bloat and he's active, all is good in the world.
