Atison Betta Pro Pellet

The pellet are small and I have read the instruction and search all over, but couldn't find the answer.

How many pellets should I feed an adult size betta?

No, I don't. I use New Life Spectrum Growth Formula - TEENY, TINY pellets. I don't count them out, but rather go by their stomach is as big as their eye method. Hard to judge, really, but so far it's worked for me.

If theyre "Micro" pellets, which are quite small, then try for 3-4 a day.
I think my boyfriend uses those, and does two at a time, twice a day. Or, you could space it out to morning, noon, night, snack ;D (I do!)

As I said in my thread I don't count the number of pellets. I feed them as much as they'll eat in about 1 minute. Usually it ends up being about 6-8 pellets.

However, I rarely feed twice a day and usually do not feed every day so my fish never have issues bloating. Not that they had issues with bloating when I did feed daily.

I feed these pellets I usually feed 4-5 once a day and mine are all plump and happy.

edit:I should probably also add that I always fast my fish one day a week, and my fish are looking a little too plump lately so I cute a couple down to three pellets.

I feed my adults 8-10 in the AM and frozen food in the PM and they have never been bloated from it. Since it is high in meats and low in grains it is pretty hard for your bettas to get bloated on it.

I just came upon this thread. I'm aware it's old but I'm horrified by what I'm reading.

First of all, fish need to eat. The Atison's pellets are absolutely tiny. Feeding them one or two pellets once per day is not great. Fasting them once per week is outrageous. My guess is some of the posters here could lose a dozen or two dozen pounds and nobody fasts you for one day per week. How about keeping the lights on or having them in a full day of darkness for a full day too while you're at it?

Do any of you read at all? I would think that since you're trusting Atison's top rated food that you'd actually think they might have a better idea of how to feed your bettas. It says to feed them twice a day with as much as your fish would consume in a few minutes. That's extremely clear.

Like most biological organisms, regularity is the best you can do for your pets. Feed your pets regularly at least once a day with an amount that is sufficient for your bettas. I give them a minimum of 3-4 of these tiny pellets per feeding, spaced out over 6-8 hours or so. My bettas have never been bloated and lasted for a long time.
