Most Cichids are ominovores, requiring a staple of diet of sinking pellets or flakes, specifically formulated for their makeup.
Best food for Cichlids
Cichlids can be an aggressive fish, requiring a specialised diet to keep up with their active nature and also repair their body and fins when necessary. We recommend Fluval Bug Bites Cichlid Granules for a fortified high-protein pellet feed. Cichlids are naturally attracted to the salmon flavour and the slow sinking pellets allow the fish to feast at their preferred depth.
We also recommend the JBL Cichlids food range. These are ideal if you are carefully watching algae growth and phosphate levels.
