| || | Cichlid food question
So, i just started a 25 gallon tank with two parrot cichlids and two jack dempseys. im new at this and really want to keep them alive. however, i got the tank on craigslist and it came with an unopened container of Tetra Tropical Fish Flakes, fairly new looking. I've been using it, but it doesnt say anywhere what kind of fish the flakes are meant for. should i not be using this food, not knowing exactly how old it is, and should i be feeding strictly cichlid food?
