Questions about feeding~

Hey everybody, so I have my little betta Hazel in a one gallon tank, everything is in order, but I wasn't really sure how much or how often to feed her. I have flake food, by the way. (Just to clarify, I don't have time/money to buy anything else right now)

Just give her a pinch the size of half your finger nail once a day. Bettas stomachs are around the size of there eyes so you don't want to over feed him/her. You should post a picture of Hazel, we love to see new fishy members

Okay, I may have given a TINY bit more than that, by accident, but that's not a huge problem, right? I didn't feed her very much at all yesterday, so I kind of overfed her JUST a BIT today. (About the size of my fingernail, maybe a bit less)
This is what she looks like :)

I know you don't have the money, but good food isn't much and that is part of being a responsible owner. Flake food is unacceptable, but she will survive short term. Give her a very small amount twice a day.

I am literally flat out broke, and my parents aren't paying for anything else. I'm also incredibly busy. I really don't want to get into more arguments tonight. Flake food is all I can do, and my betta seems to enjoy it fine.
