I need help on my cichlid tank

I need help. I have a cichlid tank right now I have a 20 gallon long fish tank. I feel over stocked but it doesn't look that way. I have 5 cichlids jack Dempsey, two convicts, jewel, and some mixed african yellow fish with black stripes. I'm not sure if I should upgrade soon or not. I feed them brine shrimp and sometimes flakes. But yet I don't know how often I should feed them.

I have to caves on the sides and some kind of log thing in the middle with plants spread around freely. Is that suitable for them? Or do you think I should upgrade to something bigger soon? And if you do how big do you think it should be?

Thank you for your help please reply soon! :)

you need to seperate the africans and the others. the convicts and dempseys will need around a 75 gallon tank. im not sure about the africans but im sure someone will come in soon with more info on them. both tanks will need very good filterations though.
