OK, feeding question. Pellet size vs how many.

As usual there is a lot of information out there, and it is hard to sift through all of it.

Some people say to feed just 2 pellets a day. Some say up to 6. And I can't tell if I am feeding correctly or not since there is such a discrepancy.

I have the Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets, and the HBH Betta Bites. Both look to be quite small sized pellets. I would think that 2 pellets a day wouldn't be enough. 2-3 pellets would be about the size of the fish's eye, which I have read is about the size of their stomach. Is 2-3 pellets a feeding, twice a day, OK for this size of pellet?

Thank you for the help!

Yes, that is a good amount to feed. So in total, 4-6 a day is a good amoint, as long of course you feed 2x a day instead of all at once.

Omega is an excellent food btw.

Yes, Comet gets 2 meals a day. Sometimes 3 pellets, sometimes 2. It depends on pellet size, since some of the pellets are extra tiny!

Thank you so much! I didn't think I was overfeeding, but I had to be sure. ;)
