i agree with ryan, NLS is a very good food for cichlids. I feed my peacocks NLS cichlid pellets and wardley cichlid flakes.

Do you mean a Mbuna and a Peacock? Peacocks are Malawi cichlids. Most Mbuna are herbivores and should be fed a less meaty diet, while Peacocks are more carnivorous and need a more meaty diet. So it does make a difference. What kind of Mbuna (if thats what you meant) do you have?

The NLS is a good food for both, but it would help to know what kind of fish you have.
