Good food ideas for cichlids?

  1. TigerStar Initiate Member

    Just what the title says.

    Do you guys have any good ideas on food I could get from the pet store, or at home to feed my African cichlids? I feel like there should be more to their diet than Tetra cichlid flakes and API bottom feeder pellets.

    I recommend food from omega one. Can't tell you which one because you have fish with different dietary needs...

    I'm looking for some help on what foods to give my SRT...I have Sera Arowana floating pellets, but it is just a sample given to me by my LFS, so when I run out, what is the best thing to feed her? She's 6-7 inches long..and I have other fish in there but they seem to be happy with cichlid sinking pellets. Any advise/recommendations are appreciated!
