Sometimes My mom feeds my fish in the morning because I usually get up at like 12 PM LOL! So usually Alex is a little stinker and gets more food...xD

Obesity is one of the leading causes of death or bettas. I suggest reigning in your feeding habits--your fish will live longer and you won't run the risk of fouling your water between water changes.

A great way to control feeding is by using a pipette to feed them pellets or frozen foods one at a time. You can use a pipette or turkey baster to remove uneaten food, or unintentionally dropped food.

Did you just shake food out of the food container? That's what happened to me the first time I fed Genie and Alakazam. =/ I didn't know you had to shake it into your hand, put the excess back in, then toss the two pellets that you kept into the tank. XD
