Ive already made him fat and want to be Sure i don't kill him with kindness
You don't want to feed bloodworms too often to him. They are actually considered not very healthy for bettas. Bettas do have a picky digestive system and are prone to bloat, constipation, and other eating disorders. Once or twice a week, a couple of bloodworms as a treat would be all we would recommend for him.
If he has gotten fat, cut back on the food you are feeding him. Once a day, 2 or 3 pieces of betta diet such as BettaMin, is all he needs. A lot of people even recommend letting the fish fast one day a week.
