cichlid pellets for bettas?!

a friend of mine just got a betta last night, and she asked me if cichlid pellets can be fed to bettas, since she said she looked at the ingredients and the cichlid pellets seem more nutritious than betta pellets and cheaper. the pellets arent big, they are the same size as betta pellets. personally i dont really like the idea of feeding another species food to another, but any input on this? just wondering if its a viable idea..

I don't see any immediate problems, although you should check the ingredients and find out what bettas need, and if the cichlid pellets have those. Since they are both predators it might be fine.

I think I'd stick with betta food to be on the safe side.
