My fish doesn't poop?

Are you supposed to see your fish all the time? My fish is definitely not bloated. But I don't see his poop comes out like I did with my goldfish from long time ago.....I feed him 4 pellets a day, is that not enough? He's smaller than normal Betta. Sometimes I think of him as a dwarf Betta. I don't think he's sick. But its just weird that people say look for his poop. But I don't see poop coming from mine lol

Unless he looks bloated, don't worry about his poop. My fish live in a planted tank, so their poop pretty much disappears after they are done. Just make sure your water is clean, and your little guy should be just fine.
And when I say make sure your water is clean, make sure you clean the gravel as well... Depending on what type of set up you have.

I think I've seen one of mine poop once. Just as long as you are feeding the 4 pellets throughout the day in 2-3 feedings, you shouldn't have to worry about bloating. Up to 6 a day is the usual. As for size, he may just of been really young when you got him.

Normally i do 2 in the morning and 2 at night. He definitely got bigger, fins are growing back. He's getting some black stuff (at first i thought it was fungus.....or whatever), but then it turned iridescent green :D

Pretty =) Oh, I was in no doubt that you were feeding them more then once a day, but I usually say things such as that as a precaution, because sometimes you end up helping/teaching something to someone =)
