    Hey I need some advice on how often I can feed feed my African cichlids peas? I posted in another thread that I have three cichlids that won't come to the top to eat the pellets and the sinking pellets does not drop quick enough before the other fish eat it, so I tried frozen peas yesterday and they loved it and is the only food I can get the three fish to eat, and does peas also help with bloat? I didn't know they was really prone to this till the other day so now I'm really paranoid about them getting it, I'm still pretty new to African cichlids and have lots to learn :)

    They are all Africans, I have a mixture of bumblebees, kennyi's, zebra's, electric yellow, and auratus. The electric yellow and the 2 auratus are the ones that won't come to the top to eat, but will eat the mess out of peas cause they sink quick enough for them to get it
