No, I can answer. (Sorry for hijacking!)
You want the belly to be a soft curve onwards to the anal fin. Like this:
\___
^ \____\ <- Anal Fin
Soft Curve. (The intersection should be more round)

Yep. The one about the soft curve is correct. To be honest, I never really understood the 2nd one about the "borderline". The 2nd Betta looked like it had that chicken "thingy" near it's ventrals.

lol I think it's flaring and it's just a weird angle. Anyway my betta is thinner than the soft curve one so could I feed him a little more at a time? Like maybe one extra pellet per feeding?

Finfinfriend, it's better to break his feedings into twice a day.
So you could try 3 pellets twice a day, that's what Teeney got.

Thank you for your help but I believe feeding them more than once a day is unnecessary (though unharmful) because they are cold-blooded and carnivores and their digestive systems are different than say, a human or even an herbivorous fish.

I see where you're coming from though.

I usually give them 4-6 pellets a day. I switch it up sometimes I give them 3 in the morning and 3 at night or 4 in one sitting. My fish are fat lol so I give them a little extra cause they are always looking at me like... "Is that all? jerk?!?"

Well I have been giving him four a day but I think I can see his rib cage a little and he has a flat belly so I'm thinking I might bump him up to five.

I feed him NLS pellets so they are pretty small compared to other brands...

Exactly! They wag their fins so expectantly for more!

*maybe guilty of over feeding on occasion*
