Question Confused about feeding! Please Help!

Ok, so I'd been feeding my little Mojo a little pinch of flakes once every other day because I read somewhere you shouldn't feed them every day so they can digest (something like that) but now I heard you should feed them 2 or 3 times a day. Understandably (due to having had only 2 bettas now) a bit confused. Which feeding schedule is best?

Depends on how old your guy is. And amount depends on size of pellets or other foods. Usually two small meals per day is good...unless your guy tends to get bloat. You could skip one day per week.

Most feed daily with one day fasting each week. I feed mine once a day but I feed pellets 99% of the time. Some people have the time to feed twice a day. Flakes are not the best choice for a Betta, its hard to measure the correct amount & Bettas for some reason are prone to bloat from them. The most recommended pellets here are New Life Spectrum & Omega One. Some of us replace a feeing with frozen foods on occasion. Do what works best for you & your fish.
