    Are these good for them?

    I decided to start feeding my Nepenthes and while I was at the store today, I got some Betta fish pellets which I've heard does wonders. So are these it?

    The only way to know if they're 'it' is to test it and see.

    Not knowing how much I should put in, I put about three or four in two of my window N. x ventrata's pitchers and about four in one of my N. sanguinea's pitcher.

    That's the kind that I've been using, pretty much - leftover food from my departed betta, Mr. President. I think sinking pellets might be better because they won't foul as easily. But I've never noticed any problems.

    Yeah, I don't think that spoiled fluid is really that common a problem. (Except when pitchers get stuffed overflowing with house ants and get moldy... ugh.)
    You can give your plants a gentle shake after feeding to stimulate digestive behavior. I think I read that on the Nep FAQ that used to be on Barry Rice's site but seems to have disappeared...
