Not sure there's a "best" food per say. I use NLS, Hikari and Sera. I like to mix it up. U wouldn't want pizza every night.

As long as I don't say tetra flakes from petsmart!! I do the same. NLS, hikari, Sprilina flakes, blood and brine shrimp cubes. Some people believe hikari is a mess. All the same if you feed properly

I feed a mix of flakes, floating pellets and sinking pellets. Also every few days I will feed frozen blood worms as a treat and they absolutely attack them. Get a vegi clip and some seaweed sheets my cichlids like to graze on them thought the day , just make sure you take them out after about 8 hours.
