Perfectly Sized Pellet:For a 1.5″ betta (from tip of nose to base of tail – before fin), feed 3 (three) pellets of Betta Bio-Gold up to three (3) times daily. Add 1 pellet per 1/4” of growth, never feeding more than 5 pellets at one feeding. You can do more feedings but make sure they are at least three (3) hours apart and at least that amount of time before all lights are out in the room. During feedings, feed 1 (one) pellet at a time and make sure the betta completely consumes each pellet. Do not over-feed, overfeeding can be detrimental to the betta and the water quality. Remove any uneaten food after the feeding period.

Add 2 (two) pellets per 1/4″ of growth, never feeding more than six(6) pellets at one feeding. You can do more feedings but make sure they are at least two (2) hours apart and at least that amount of time before all lights are out in the room. More feedings will improve growth for your betta. During feedings, feed 1 (one) pellet at a time and make sure the betta completely consumes each pellet. Do not over-feed, overfeeding can be detrimental to the betta and the water quality. Remove any uneaten food after the feeding period.
Bettas are called “fighting fish” because the males fight with one another. You should never keep males together for this reason, but can keep a single betta with other non-aggressive fish in a larger aquarium. Keep your water at a low to moderate acidity and maintain a temperature between 73°F (23°C) and 81°F (27°C) free of drafts or rapid temperature changes. Change some water weekly with a water conditioner to remove chloramines, chlorine and ammonia that is the same temperature as the water you are replacing.
