I primarily feed a cheap green flake high in fiber, and then offer "treats" of other richer foods occassionally, maybe weekly, maybe monthly.

I think they are many good foods out there, but generally speaking I think we have a tendancy to over feed our fish. Its easy to do, they are such good beggars and will eat anything offered.

Remember food is something that YOU have total control over.

In the wild they are lean and mean, and that is what I am striving for.

Cichlid Power!
