Exclamation Feeding

I have been feeding my Betta Two Pellets in the morning and at Night. But he seems to go straight toward food urgently once its put in. THen continues to look for more after. Am I not feeding him enough or is this normal?

You are doing just fine. Healthy betta's will look hungry 24/7. Resist the temptation. I could probably throw a container full of pellets at mine and it wouldn't surprise me if he "attempted" to eat the whole thing til his stomach burst.

They are hungry little fish. I agree with Scootshoot. I feed mine 6 days a week and fast one day a week. I also give mine bloodworms one day of those six instead of his regular food.

Most people fast their fish once a week to help clean out their digestive systems.
