Amount of Pellets per Feeding

I've been feeding my betta when I wake up and when I get off work. Each time, I feed him 3 aqueon bettafood pellets. So that's a total of 6 per day. He eats them pretty fast. I feed him one at a time and it takes like one minute. I've heard you should feed what they can eat in 3 minutes and even 10. What's the right way to go about it? How many should I be feeding. Here is a picture of them:

They look like pretty big pellets so that sounds about right what you are feeding him.I feed my boys NLS pellets (which are really little,1mm) and I give them 3 each in the morning & 4 each at night.

I also feed Aqueon pellets. I feed 3 pellets once a day, but have also done 3 pellets twice a day.

Definitely do NOT feed them as much as they want in a certain time limit. Bettas don't self regulate and most will eat until they burst!
