Not really you could feed the blood worms once in a while but not mbuna I feed my hap/peacock tank a pellet food veggie flake and the occasional blood worm honestly you'd do them great to just feed NLS

It doesn't have a minnow in its mouth. That is a female that is mouthbrooding her young.

The cichlids will likely eat the snails, but in part it will depend on what types of cichlids you go with. I don't generally recommend keeping peacocks with mbuna, as the peacocks are generally carnivores and the mbuna are generally herbivores - so they have different nutritional needs.
