How much to feed a giant betta?


I have my first Betta, a Giant! :)

However im not sure how much to feed him.

I dont want to starve him or over feed him.

I have New Life Spectrum pellets, and have been giving him about three pellets in morning and three in late afternoon.

What do you think?

I feed my giants NLS Betta as well. I feed them 3x a day 6 pellets each time. Giants have a monster appetite and weigh 4x as much as a regular betta. I also feed a few bloodworms every day on top. soon we will have our white worm culture running which will give them some variety.

Feed him more. Mine get NLS Betta 2x daily about 10 pellets each time.

Be very careful that you don't ever overfeed. I lost my best giant because my daughters friend thought he looked hungry and accidentally dumped about a teaspoon of pellets in-she said she only meant to put a few in but the bottle dumped more than she was trying to pour out. He ate until he looked like he was going to explode, sat on the bottom of a hospital tank for a few days, got sick and died. They will not stop eating. He was actually still swimming to the top and trying to eat-spitting every bite back out-when I found him.

On a side note, they also dirty up their water reallllly fast. I hope he's in at least 10 gallons.

Thanks for your advice.

I have him in a 30l tank on his own, and have a regular cleaning schedule :)

Will look to average out what you guys have said and see how we go from there :)
