Also I prefer pellet food what is a good brand? Sorry I don't mean to rant on and on just never kept Africans cichlids

Ha, your fine! NLS is a great brand, some people use Omega One, basically your looking for anything with under 40% protien as Mbuna's are prone to Malawi Bloat. I feed mine tons of fresh produce, cucumbers, broccoli, zucchini and frozen romaine leaves. They love veg. Great for them too.
