Welcome.. you are close to my hometown I grew up in long ago :)

What food are you feeding?
How much of it?
How often are you feeding?

How big is the tank?
Depending upon size of the tank, filter, live plants, cycling it varies on how much and often it needs changing. It will always need a weekly change, but the smaller they are, and with no filter, the more they need it.

When feeding, it's always good to be careful not to put too much food in there.. and using a net or turkey baster, remove any uneaten food within minutes of feeding to avoid it fouling up the tank.

Hello friend!!! Your off on a Good start. But 12 pellets sound like alot. I think you have the same food as my cousin.... That stuff does get the tank dirty fast. So try not to feed it that much.. Maybe 2 pellets in the morning and 2 at night?? I use Wardley Betta Pellets for two of my males, one of my males and the females eat New Life Spectrum New Formula. 6 dollars at Petco, I recommend it. It's a big jar for only feed them 2-4 pellets in the morning and at night. Wardley pellets are inexpensive but aren't the best brand. Good luck to you, friend (I know her)
