How many pellets do you feed and how often?

Hi all. This I am sure is quite a common question. I feed two pellets twice a day but wanted to ask what everybody else is doing. The range I read about is quite large- anywhere from 2-4 pellets once-twice a day. Do you fast one day a week? Sorry for the multiple questions...

I generally feed it 3 pellets twice a day, sometimes 4 once a day if I forget to do it earlier in the day.

Thank you all for replying. Do you feed freeze-dried blood worms, frozen or the real deal? Never offered those before...

Freeze dried. Freeze dried should be rehydrated before feeding to prevent digestive problems.

Does tossing them into the water count as rehydrating the freeze dried worms?

I'm also curious about betta diet options. I'm considering changing to freeze dried. Currently i have brine shrimp now on weds and flakes every other day minus sat/sun. Are peas and cucumbers no good?
