What species are your cichlids and what particular foods do you feed them?

Uneaten food would sink to the bottom. If left uneaten, it would rot and cause water quality problems such as high ammonia. It could also promote algae growth.

it's only 38G, planning to upgrade to a 150G tank. and by the way, i fed them with African Cichlid - ATTACK! (that's what it says in the label)

Third pic is Metriclima greshakei? Can other people who kept African cichlids long enough confirm this?

All your cichlids prefer vegetable matter so foods with high protein content are best avoided.;)

Looks like an Accii to me with two Yellow Labs, Lupes. No need scientific names here since most lfs's use common names. They will probably change the scientific names next week anyway. lol

Top fish in the 2nd pic is either a accii or a rusty, on top. Middle fish could ge a red top blue zebra, and of course the yellow Lab.

Top fish in the 1st pic seems to be a male Kenyii beginning its sexual color morphing.

Don't forget the Planaria.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
