Well.... I have a cichlid, think it's an electric yellow. I tried to put it in my community tank. One of my Harlequin rasboras got curious and came really close to it. The cichlid made a half hearted attempt to eat it, opened it's mouth more then wide enough to swallow it whole. Fortuantly it was as a said half hearted and the rasboras swam away, however if it had been in a corner with no place to swim too I'm certain it would have been gone.
So while I wouldn't expect the cichlid to chase the rasboras down to eat.. if they become careless they could easily wind up as lunch.
