I would suggest 2 or 3 pellets, depending on the size of them.
I am just wondering, what size tank do you have?
He is ok, probably just hungry. Give 2 pellets in the morning and 2 at night. It would be real good for you to get him some freeze dried bloodworms and give him a small amount for one meal every other day, when you can. They love a variety.
Ok. should i skip a meal to avoid overfeeding?
I wouldn't feed him anymore today.
feed him 3pllts twice a day..n he will do fine..
Here is something to think about: a bettas stomach is only about the size of his eye, while the pellets seem tiny, they are dried and compressed which means when they get wet they expand feeding too many dry pellets can result in them expanding in the fish and causin major problems. It's a good idea to soak the food first in some tank water before feeding it to your betta.
A simple rule of thumb I use is if your fish looks fat, it probably is. You do have to know what a fish is supposed to look like, even the ones that are deliberately bred to be "round" will show bulges and not smooth contours, if overfed. This does require frequent observation until proper appearance becomes intuitive.
Betta fish r playful animals but betta fish need to be feed
I feed my betta fish 4 pellets a day 2 at night and 2 in the
Morning but if ur betta fish eats REALLY quick
When u put food in his/her tank then feed them ONLY one
Extra. but betta fish always want to eat because when they r
In the wild they never know when there next meal is so it
Is ok to skip a day!!! Betta fish MUST and i mean MUST not
Get feed over 6 a day i mean its ok if u do it one day or two in
His/her life!!! Bettas can even go without food for a week but
