Feeding bettas

How many times are you meant to feed a betta fish. Been reading up on it and its saying twice a day. Once in morning a small amount. And once at night small amount. I don't want to under feed him or over feed him incase it causes problems for him. I have pellets and blood worms. How often should I feed him thanks

We all have our own way of feeding but most recommend at least 2x per day until a Betta's belly is gently rounded. It's not one size fits all as counting pellets doesn't take in to consideration variation is size of the pellets or or Betta.

If your dog thinks you are the greatest do not seek a second opinion
