How much brine shrimp?

How much do you feed your Betta? The guy at the pet store sold my husband "one tablespoon", but I swear there are 187 million shrimp in the bag! How many do you give your fish at a time? I figure I should feed twice a day, still.....right?

And how do you store brine shrimp anyway? They are still in the bag -- I try to put air in it when I rubber band it up.

When I feed frozen brine shrimp, I only give my Betta about 3 or 4 microscopic shrimp O_o I have Brine Shrimp Eggs here, which I'd have to hatch. That would only be for a group though.

Hmm, these are live shrimp. By the gazillions. I've been giving a half dozen or even more (I scoop them from the bag with a spoon and it's hard haha).

Half a dozen per Betta? I read that Bettas stomach are the size of their eye, so I feed 3 or 4 frozen shrimp. I dunno! Someone with more expertise will come along lol My tropical tanks go crazy for them though!
