betta feeding time Q.

i was just curious to know if feeding time ( morning, noon, or evening ) mattered when feeding a betta. i normally feed my little friend when i go on my luch break ( around 1:00 pm ) and stop by my house to feed him but sometimes its impossible for me to stop by so ive been thinking of switching to either feeding him in the morning before i go to work or in the afternoon when i get home. what would probably be best or does it really not matter?

EDIT: meant to post this in the betta fish care section.....sorry!

Don't know if it really matters, but I feed in the morning. Just seems most natural to me. :)

i feed at night, because I can't remeber when im drowsy in the morning and i dont get home until 5-7. So i feed @ 7:30 every day 3 pellets. Exept sundays... & every once and a while i treat him to a bloodworm.

My feeding schedule is the same as DQ's.
The point is really to just feed them at a consistent time so that their bowels are regular. So as long as it's at the same time every day, it doesn't really matter whether it's morning or lunch or whatever.
