I don't know about the pellets. I suppose that's ok, but rest of the offerings look fine. You could also try raw shrimp and fish from your grocer. You don't have to feed him all of it, just switch off from time to time.

If you are unable to get Silversides than Feed the Squid, Raw Shrimp& the Krill, I am not sure about chilid pellets because i do not know about them. One of my Volitans loves pellets so I feed it Spectrum pellets.
You may want to pick up some Zoe/Selcon (Vitamins) to soak your lions food in.

I dont believe the cichlid pellets would add any beneficial vitamins or have any nutritional value for the lion.. The other food sounds fine, as fluff suggested, try a raw shrimp.

That should be fine, if you want to feed pellets you can get larger Spectrum Pellets. I have one that likes Raw Salmon & one that wont touch it, you could try a small chunk if you would like to offer more of a variety.
