Feeding

I was wondering how many times a day you should feed your betta, I have heard lots of different stories so I am just wondering what I should actually feed it.

I also have pellets and bloodworms, I was wondering how often I should feed him of each. I have heard you should only feed bloodworms 1 to 2 times a week so I am just wondering.

Most people feed their bettas a pellet food for their staple diet and bloodworms, daphnia and brine shrimp for treats. You can feed your betta bloodworms once or twice a week as a treat. You can feed him twice a day, 2-3 pellets each time.

Once a day is okay. I feed twice a day. My male gets 2 pellets morning & evening. My female gets 1 in the morning and 2 in the evening. I also feed bloodworms once a week and they are fasted the day after. I think twice a day helps with digestion. I'm not saying double your food, just do half and half.

EDIT: Just so you know I'm not sexist or anything.Haha. My female just isn't as active or as large as my male, so she isn't feed as much.
