How often do you feed your cichlids?

I feed once per day. Usually at night.
Not sure if I should feed twice per day.

How does everyone else feed?

Once per day is adequate. Unless they are fry. They will always beg for food but you can't give in to them. Lol

Pellets Twice a day, 6am and 6pm a few days a week. Sometimes I just feed once a day containing frozen foods at 6pm. I fast them 1 day a week.
