Hello!

I am sure LEDs would work just fine for Cichlid tanks. With the fact that most Cichlid tanks exclude plants, you could get away with a lot more in terms of requirements of the LED.

Which ones are you looking at?

Ok!

Like I said, any viewing LED would work for what you need it to do (unless you're trying to support plants).

I have Finnex FugeRay fixtures for my freshwater tanks personally and I love them.

It's an led system that uses rgb's or reds, greens, and blues along with whites. This allows you to customize the color spectrum of your tank which would be perfect for cichlids and their varying coloration. It comes with a remote which is cool, this remote allows you to program custom color settings and also set off thunder/lightning storm simulations (i dont).
