How can you tell if your betta fish is constipated?

It will usually appear bloated.

Thanks!
And also - is feeding my betta 2 pellets twice a day too little? (and then fasting once a week)?
Then feeding bloodworms once or twice a week replacing the pellets, and flakes whenever I feel like he needs to change up his diet?

There is no 'golden' feeding routine, or anything set in stone when it comes to feeding your betta. Once a day, twice a day, every other day, etc., as long as your betta is getting the nutrition it needs, it's fine. A lot of people, though, feed their fish much in the same way as you've described above; two pellets twice a day with a day of fasting and intermittent bloodworm (or other food) feedings.

After you fill the tank and when you're letting the water sit for 24 hours, do you leave the filter on throughout that sitting period?

Lol, okay I have one more question - (sorry, I'm really new to this whole betta fish thing) - how can you tell the age of a beta fish? I know you can tell by the size of the fins, but my veiltail just looks like any other betta... Is there no way to tell until he's obviously old?

As far as I know, there is no real way to tell how old your betta is. If you've gotten him from a LFS, you can probably assume he's around a year old.
