no, cichlids are aggressive fish and feeding time should bring that out in them.
just watch out for lip lock fights and if the one claims the tank as his territory, then you will have to relocate the other one because unlike the wild he has no other place to go.
cichlids are my favorite fish and i hope that you enjoy the new hobby.
if you plan on keeping just two or mabe one more i would suggest moving them to at least a 20 gal. LONG tank.
the 20 gal. long tanks are easy to take care of, give the fish 2 feet of space to swim around in and look really sharp if thats the only tank that you can afford on a budget.
