how much times does a betta poop in a week?

my fish hasn't pooped for days. i think the last time it pooped was last week..?
i've been feeding it 2 pellets twice a day. i cut down from the 3 pellets because he gets bloated all the time -_-

i change his water everyday because i'm treating the tear on his fin. i try to look for poop in the water, but there hasn't been any since last week.
i tried epsom salt for a couple days (last week) to see if he would poop and he only pooped once.

does anyone know if this could be a problem?

I don't know that much about fish waste, but I'd like to know more, too! I don't know whether I should be watching out for his waste or what.

it depends on your betta's activities ..

mine range from 4-5 hrs after feeding .. to 1-2 days ... usually when they don't poopie after 2 days i give them an extra exercise session (getting them to flare and follow a mirror) .. usually gets them to go
