Welcome. In order to give you advice on anything from diet and water chemistry to scaping.. we need to know what kind of cichlids.

Once set up I have found cichlids to be both beautiful and simple to look after. Goodluck

Discus are beautiful but not simple to look after. Large South American cichlids require a lot of large water changes.... so is the op raising African cichlids? I haven't seen him specify any where but it looks like Africans in the pics.

I disagree totally with your first sentence !!! Discus are very easy to look after just time consuming. What's so hard about a good water change schedule ?? Click image for larger version
