I have never heard of that flake food, but they should not be fed a regular diet of it, they need a variety of foods but not too much fatty stuff. Good quality cichlid flakes and supplements of lettuce, peas, zucchini and carrots should also be included.
Be careful with the fry as well as the parents can potentially eat them unless they are separated.
AAh Tazman, good to hear from you.. I thought I made you mad. I'll go to frozfen brine shrimp for now then..I'm not having any luck with my brine eggs-they hatch and die almost immediately.(Sounds ridiculous, I know). I don't have the parents..wish I did. Bought these guys online..six of them. And I'm off to get lettuce and carrots. Thank you Tazman. Jim
