NLS flakes

I've been feeding my cichlids a flake food and wanted to switch to NLS would the nls all purpose flakes work just as well as the cichlid pellets?

I only used the flakes until my fish are able to take the .5mm pellets.

I've honestly never had any issues switching between food for my fish. Try not feeding for a few days then offering the pellets. Flakes are alright but I wouldn't use them as a staple.

NLS makes good flake food. I use NLS Optimum Community Flakes (with garlic) for my tetras. For my rams, I incorporate NLS Thera-A pellets (1 mm). My four-month-old GBRs take both readily.

Would 2mm pellets be too small for my jack dempsey it says it's for medium fish?

NLS flakes

They actually might be a little big.
