I have had my one male betta for over a year now and i feed him 3 pellets in the morning and 3 -4 at night w a blood worm one a week instead of pellets . And i also have just gotten a baby betta (fry) a week ago and i bought him micro pellets . He is very very tiny and LOVES to eat . They both do . And they are very active. But the woman at petco said to feed my big one once or 2x a week and only 3 pellets and my baby 1x a week w 2 micros witch i think is ridiculous. My male Ares is very large . Not fat but just a big fish. I would like to know some feeding routines you guys have .
