feeding our female betta

how often are we to feed our female betta?
the container she came in said to feed 2-3 times a week,
but on the bottle of food we bought it says 2-3 times a day.

is it flakes or pellets.
what works for me is 2 pellets in the morning and 2 pellets in the evening.
or in the morning, feed him as many flakes as he can eat in 1 minuite. and the same in the evening
and if she looks bloated one day you can fast her from a meal.

flakes or pellets? i have 4 female betta 3 are about the size of males maybe slightly smaller, one is less than half their size. i cut her pellets in half and feed her 2-3 pellets a day, the others get 4 pellets like my males. give them one day per week w/no food (feed 6 days a week) to help clean them out and prevent bloating and constipation. they enjoy frozen bloodworms and peas and occational healthy treats (once a week)

I heard that you should feed female bettas one pinch in the morning and one flake at night. but that is only for flakes.

just make sure whatever feeding schedule you establish none of the food gets sunk to the bottom as this really messes with the water quality so scoop out the extra food
