A betta's stomach is about the size of its eye. The pellets may be tiny but they'll be enough. My bettas get 3 in the morning and 3 at night. A couple small meals a day is better than one big one

Never heard of it, and can't find anything on it online either.. what are the ingredients?

Depends on the size of the food on how much to feed at once.

feed 3 every other day. give them time to cycle out there bodys, just because the food is small don't mean that you can't blot him..

The size of a pin head? Thats really small!! You might want to switch to something a little larger, NLS is about the size of the plastic protector part on a bobby pin *hair pin* and you should feed about 6 of those a day.

At that size, could they be for Betta fry rather than adults?
