We need pics to determine your fish. Unless those cichlids are haplochromis, you are feeding them the wrong way. Too much proteins can lead to bloat eventually killing your fish in the process. You need to stick to vegetable matter such as cucumber for their diet and try New Life Spectrum for a start.
