For starters, NEVER listen to any care advice pet store employees give you. Oh the joys of pet store employee advice
That pet store is wildly underfeeding their bettas.
What brand of pellets are you feeding? the amount depends on their size.
Feed twice a day.. If your betta looks bloated at all, then you should feed less. Do not feed at all for one day out of the week- bettas are known to easily get their digestive system backed up, this day of fasting allows their system to get a break. :)
