It won't be long before those guys get big and are craving feeder fish. So I wouldn't bother setting up anything semi-permanent to feed them from while small. A block of frozen brine shrimp is fairly cheap and all of my fish love them. You might want to consider bloodworms too, once they get a little large for the brine shrimp. I wouldn't feed that every day, I'd mix it in with dry cichlid pellets. By the time they get big enough that store-bought frozen food gets expensive, you'll probably want to move on to bigger and better food anyway.
Now if you're thinking about a tank of livebearers for feeders, that I think I could get behind.
(As an aside, my Bosemani Rainbows absolutely love defrosted brine shrimp, and go crazy when I feed them that. They are seriously unimpressed by flakes. My tetras/raspboras also thoroughly enjoy it, but don't seem to be quite the connoisseurs that my rainbows are.)
