NLS Cichlid Food for bettas

I ordered some NLS small fish for my guys...especially Monkeyface who has trouble with larger pellets like Biogold. Right now I have to hunt for the tiniest ones for him. Anyway the order was goofed up and they sent NLS Cichlid food instead. I'm still getting the NLS small fish but the NLS Cichlid ingredients and size look pretty good. Can I feed this to my guys, too, for more variation? Right now they only get Biogold as their daily food with dried bloodworm treats 1X/week. The NLS small fish will be a nice change for them but I wondered if the Cichlid food would be ok, too.

Probably... Sherolyn from BasementBettas.com NLS by the pound so she might be able to give you an answer.

NLS has practically the same formula for each of their foods except for Thera-A (which has loads more garlic), so I'm not sure that it'll make much of a difference for their diets except for the pellet size and how fast it sinks.

Great. This way Monkeyface can get both NLS and tiny BioGolds I hunt for and the other 3 can have larger BioGold and the Cichlid food. Everybody happy and at this rate I have about 10 years worth of food LOL Now to get to a store sometime for frozen bloodworm goodies (always yummier than the freeze-dried type).

NLS does make a betta formula. I usually just grab it off Amazon for like $10. Don't have to worry about pellet size or sinking too fast.
