    ok so this may be a stupid question but ive read that they are cichlids and i was wondering are they supposed to eat chichlid food? if so can other tropical fish eat their food.. and i was wondering what hikari food would i feed to normal fish that are not bottom feeders and are bigger than neons etc.. also a lot of my stores are having a hard time getting in the hikari brands and what would the next best food be to feed my guys.

    All the fish in my 45 GBR community tank eat the cichlid food. It's higher in protien, so I also feed wafers and other foods. If I feed multiple types of food, they all eat the cichlid pellets over the wafers or flake, so i generally feed one type of food at a time.

    I get my fishfood online. Most of my meaty foods are hikari, but I use New Life Spectrum garlic flakes as well as NLS pellets. Also, I feed hikari microwafers and algae wafers.

    I would not recommend the micropellets or any small pellet unless you have a sand substrate.
