I feed 2-3 pellets twice a day, fast on Friday, and I switch the food up with Wardley's and Bio-Gold throughout the week (which has it's own schedule). I do daphnia on the weekend & fd bloodworms once a week.

I do 2 pellets in morning, 3 at night, and on fasting day (sat) I give 1/2 - 1 bloodworm early in the morning/late the night before so they do get a little variety.

My guys all get 3-4 pellets twice a day. I feed a mix of hikari betta bio-gold pellets and topfin color enhancing betta pellets. twice a week they get a dinner of bloodworms or brine shrimp instead of pellets :)

My feeding schedule is 4-6 pellets a day (2/3 in the morning and 2/3 at night), freeze dried brine shrimp twice a week, and then fasting on the weekend.

My pellets are TopFin, thoguh I would reccomend Hikari. My brine shrimp is Hikari, though.

Top Fin pellets actually aren't too bad nutrition wise. They tend to be a little harder than the Hikari but I haven't heard anything bad about the top fin stuff... plus its a LOT cheaper ;)

I have to agree with Dragonfish, part of it does depend on the fish, I had one my boy Stinky that ate little and was a little more calm, and my boy Willie at a little more then Stinky would and he tended to have a little more active personality.

My boy won't eat anything Top Fin. He did his first week, then I tried Hikari with him and he decided "never again!" lol. He spits Top Fin back out ASAP.

I couldn't find Hikari when I was buying food, so I just grabbed TopFin. Fortunately, all my bettas are pigs and will eat anything you throw in for them. Lol. :P

My problem with TOP Fin is that they sank and my bettas were too lazy to go after them. They would just watch the pellets go straight to the bottom.
