Re: I have cichilds!

In a weak moment last night, I bought some small mixed African cichlids (so much for the tetras). The cichlids are very colourful :)
Now for the questions: what do they eat? What I do know is that they are aggressive and can only live with each other, and that they like lots of hiding places, which I have provided. There are currently 6 fish in there. I think it may be slightly over crowded, but have been told that it is better to have that many so they don't pick on each other.
