Feeding African Cichlids

Hey guys, I was wondering what kind of food you feed your African Cichlids, i'm looking to find the flakes that contain spiriluna, and I have been using Hikari Excel sinking pellets and Hikari Gold floating and frozen hikari bloodworms, frozen brine shrimp, I also have a lot of other foods. I'd greatly appreciate any advice towards feeding.. I have not fed zucchini, or carrott or peas yet.. Should I chop them up if I use the natural route and let them float? Do they enjoy foods that are natural like these with no specific smell? love u guyz thankx

What type of fish are we talking here?! African is a really broad term that encompasses allot of fish each type with different nutritional needs/ requirements.

Hope you have the same luck that I've had with it! My solo african river cichlid loves the stuff. When he is not being a hermit his colors are a sight to behold. Been very colorful since that became his primary diet.

NLS cichlid formula should work perfectly, i also feed with spirulina flake. its just my way to make sure they dont get too much protein. but its not needed im sure. just a personal choice.

I don't understand why or who u r being hateful too. I try and answer everyone that reply's to my post if I miss one or two I am sorry. I do have a crazy life, two crazy kiddos that are two and one, a house to clean and maintain, a fiancť that I cooked for wash clothes etc, then on top of that a dog cat and three tanks. I do my best in trying to answer everyone. And yes he has actually helped me out a whole lot in other posts that I posted. I sorry if anyone thinks I was being rude that will never be the case if I don't answer you and sorry if anyone thought different. If that is not to me then y'all will know why I don't answer if it happens lol! And no ur not being rude just honest and blunt!
