the brand and type does matter .. as pellet size varies depending on what brand and food it is ..

15-20 pellets a day is definitely too much for a normal sized female betta .. unless she is a giant or a king
now that she's used to being fed so much .. her stomach has expanded .. i would recommend to slowly lower the amount (1-2 pellets less each feeding for 2-3 days .. then lower 1-2 pellets again for 2-3 days) .. instead of just suddenly changing reducing her food .. i don't know if females ever tail bite .. but if i changed my boy mystique's feeding schedule .. he stresses out and bites his tail T_T
