I've always heard that more than once or twice a week was bad for them.

Keep in mind that they are brine shrimp meaning they live in salt water so it would add some salt to your fish's diet...I don't know enough to know whether that's a bad thing or not

That is where a brine shrimp net comes in handy. I scoop the little guys into the net and rinse them well in treated tap water before adding to the tank as food.

I have fed brine shrimp to freshwater fish for years with great result. Betta's are pretty salt tolerant so once rinsed it should be a non issue for them
