Don't bother with the "feed them what they can eat in x minutes" stuff. Most animals tend to treat every day like they will be starving to death tomorrow since it's basic survival strategy so they will eat themselves sick if you give them as much as they can eat in a minute. I've only had one betta who would leave extra food in the tank alone. And some bettas will eat algae wafers despite being carnivorous.

I don't bother with fasting. If your pellet is high protein, it shouldn't clog their digestion and require a fast day. I'd only fast a betta if it is seriously constipated/bloated. Like one time one of my boys ate a snail shell and that was stuck in there for a few days.
