It means to not feed your betta to help their digestive tract clear out.

Most of us fast our bettas one day a week to help their digestive tracts, as dr2b said.

You really don't HAVE to. It just helps to keep fish from having digestive problems. I follow up my fast day with some freeze dried daphnia. And yes, once a week. :)
