What's the best food for Cichlids

I usually use Tetra Cichlid or Wardley's Advanced Nutrition....are there any brands better?

There are load's of better brands than those, New Life Spectrum, Omege One, Dainchi, Hikari, and Ken's would be my top five in that order.

I am now using New Life Spectrum (Cichid Pellets) and Omega One (Algae supplement) exclusively. I've read a bit of material on food and those two brands are consistently praised for their nutritional value.

Color and growth are excellent and you won't find better than the ones listed above, but personally long term health is more important to me that the first two. I use New Life Spectrum for everything from oscars to plecos. Petco sells NLS and Petsmart sells Omega One so either should be easily obtained depending on where your located. I order all my foods online due to the quantity I use.
