Red face Poop? (Amount & Frequency)

My female betta doesn't appear to poop as much as my new male. Yes, he's a little larger, but he seems to have LOTS more of the stuff. (Both in frequency and amount.)

Both are in bare-bottomed Critter Keepers. (No gravel = easier water changes.) So I'm able to see exactly what's happening. Both are fed Aqueon Betta Pellets, and the occasional mosquito larva (when I can find them). She's much more active than he is, so maybe she's burning up more calories?

Anyone have thoughts or information about this type of thing?

I just want to make sure that neither fish is having digestion issues.

Poop! ... I think your guess that she is utilizing most the raw material is spot on. Lucky you can get mosquito larvae.
