How small are we talking? My 1-2" fish get flakes and they are doing very well.

I use both pellets and flakes. They seem to get better growth with a mix of the two fed 2 - 3 small feedings a day.

If they are too small for the regular 1mm NLS cichlid pellets, then I use the .5mm NLS grow. I used to use flakes, but find that using the pellets increases growth pretty significantly since they end up getting more nutrients when they eat the pellets.

I'd feed adult food at that size. Under 1" then a smaller pellet like NLS Grow Formula is something I have had success with.

Up to about 1", I feed a combination of spirulina flake, NLS flake w/garlic, and NLS Grow. From 1" to 1-1/2", just the spirulina and grow, and beyond 1-1/2", NLS 1mm and spirulina. I've had very good success with this regimen.
