King Male feeding??

I got a King Male, Sumo, a couple of days ago because my fav betta Sunkist passed away suddenly (on my birthday ). I was wondering how much I should be feeding him. I feed all of my other bettas 4 pellets a day (2 in the morning and 2 at night). I feed all my bettas Hikari pellets. I vary it with some higher quality food also but am trying to get rid of it. Do you think it is ok to double that? So 8 pellets a day?? This King Male is MASSIVE! He is probably 4 inches and 3/4 an inch thick. HUGE! I just feel like I am starving him if I feed him what I feed all of my others.

I wouldnt do 8! D: I'd give an extra, maybe two. Do this for a few days, and watch for any bloat or a bigger belly. Look for poops and whatnot to make sure things are alright. If this works out for a week or so, give one maybe two more.
Idk, just my take on things XD

Thanks for the response!

I have been feeding him the same as the rest but last night I was looking at him and he was just begging away. So I gave him a little extra. He is basically twice the size of my other bettas so I though maybe twice the amount might work? Maybe I will just do 3 in the morning and 3 at night and see if he shows signs of bloating.

You should have seen him at Petco, it was sad. He is huge but in the same size cup as the rest of the bettas with about 1.5 inches of water. He was almost the length of the cup. I just had to get him. I had actually seen him there a week or 2 ago also. There was another one as big as him but figured I would start out with him. MAYBE I'll get the other if he is still there the next time I go in but they are $19.99. My husband would probably freak though! Lol!
