Food's with amimal protein's at more than 35 % fed too often to African's who are unable to digest it properly, often causes bloat.
African's would do better with food's such as New life Spectrum or Hikari Cichlid pellet's designed for these fish.
African's love the meaty food's but as mentioned,,they can't really processs it the way other larger cichlid's such as south american's do.
African's need a fair amount of herbivorous food's like algae based, or spirulina based, with only occasional meaty food's like fish,shrimp,salmon,krill,as treat maybe once a week.
Also help's to feed maybe once a day, as opposed to three or four times a day. IME
