How to Feed a Betta Fish

Your Betta might look like it will happily chow down on food forever. Unfortunately, their stomachs are small, around the size of their eyeballs.  So it's important to remember that when you are considering how to feed your betta fish, that size matters.

You will find different advice on Betta care on different websites and on different food packets. I prefer to use Hikari Betta Bio Gold pellets. Hikari produces some of the best fish food out there, so you're in good hands!

I feed my betta fish four to five pellets twice a day, and my fish maintains a steady weight and swims happily around without fatigue. As a treat, I sometimes feed him a dried bloodworm, chopped into two to three pieces as well. A single container of bloodworm will last about as long as your Betta, since they can't eat more than one or two in a single sitting!

If you're new to keeping a Betta the best way to judge how much to feed your betta is by observing him.

If he doesn't eat all of his food within a couple of minutes, serve him less.

If he looks overweight then feed him less

If he becomes lethargic he may have too much or too little food in his diet.

We hope this helped you learn how to feed a Betta fish, it's really not that difficult, and it's a simple enough task to keep your Betta well fed and happy!
