Question Am I feeding too much?

So at first I thought I was giving a good amount, but I've been hearing/seeing things around forums that suggest I might be feeding a little to much? My feeding schedule for my boys is this: 5 pellets in the morning, 5 pellets at night, with 1 day of fasting on Sundays. Is this too much food for them?

Yep, that's too much.
Put 10 pellets in a cup of water and see what it looks like. A Bettas Stomach is only about as big as his eye, Try 3 or 4 pellets a day. Fasting is a great idea.

He'll beg for more for food, that's normal. They all do that.
Don't kill him with kindness.

Poo ok. My boys are used to having breakfast and dinner so I do not want to change that... Hmmm would 3 pellets in the morning and 3 pellets at night work? Or is that still to much?

It depends on the fish and the pellet size. I feed anywhere from 1-3 pellets twice daily.
