Frequency of poop

Quite random, but I was wondering how often a betta should poop?

I feed mine a combination of betta pellets, brine shrimp and blood worms 6 days a week, and fast for 1 day. My fish only poops once a week (after the day of fasting), is that normal?

How much a betta poops really depends on diet, heating, and general health of the fish. Is your fish in a bare-bottomed container? If your tank has gravel and lots of decorative items, you likely just aren't noticing his poop. Brine shrimp are very fibrous, so if you feed your fish brine shrimp before fasting day, that might be the reason you see lots of poop on that particular day.

yeah, keep your tank bare bottom for a while, you'll be surprise how much poop there is. lol I didn't think my betta was pooping until I've been keeping it bare bottom.
