I am newbie. Recently, I bought betta fish for my daughters. I can't believe how much I am enjoying them! I need a final answer on how much and how often to feed them. I am feeding them three small pellets twice a day. The label says to feed them several times a day and Google says once.
They love to eat and it is so much fun for the kids to feed them but I do not want to overfeed.
Mine gets two-thee pellets once a day. Their stomach is only about the size of their eye, so if you follow the instructions on the package you'll get a bloated betta really, really fast. Make sure to soak the pellets in a little bit of water before you feed them so they expand outside of the fish's belly, not in it. (:
The boys get 2 pellets twice a day. Recently I've started mincing a little bit of garlic and adding it to the water the pellets soak in before I feed it to them. Garlic acts as a natural anti-parasitic :)
