Why would you do that? That's a lot of unnecessary stress. I have a sorority of 4 with 3 getting ready in other tanks. I feed them together. They don't fight over food, and its isn't something that starts fights. Just drop in enough pellets for all of them.... For frozen foods I feed them together, but I use tweezers and give them each a worm/brine shrimp individually. I do that because they can easily over eat if they get too many of those. Tweezers are real handy. Just stick the worm in their face and they'l eat it. They generally eat anything in front of their faces, if its not food they still do, except they'l spit out anything they dont think tastes good.
It's also pretty difficult to catch the bettas with cups as nets can hurt their fins. I dont usually use nets with mine. So save the trouble and just feed them together. Some people still just throw in a bunch of worms and that still works, I Just like controlling how much each of them gets, because Ive had an obese girl before.
