DIY Food for Cichlids

I am currently in the process of making my own cichlid food to balance out my cichlid's diet.

So far this is what I am intending to put in the blender.
- Unshelled peas
- 1/8 clove of a garlic
- spirulina flakes
- NLS flakes

Is there anything I should take out or add?

I don't think it's DIY when your using premade commercial foods, what are you intending to use as a binding agent? Why not use NLS Thera exclusively and call it day?

Oh. Well I actually just wanted to add peas into their diet and wasn't sure how.

Or are there any cichlids diy recipes without commercial food?

Thanks for the link! Do I need to shell my peas if I am going to blend it?
