need help with my cichilds
i got them from the fish store as african cichlids but there are many diffrent types so i was wondering if anyone can tell me what kind they are one is white with black dots on it one is purple/blue with yellow on its side and i have a blue with black stripes on its side (longways) also i got the floating food pelts for them and they dontgo to the top to eat them i have been feeding them ghost shrimp and guppys cuz i cant get them to eat any thing else except bloodworms and is there any other kind of fish i can put with them and what would be good to put in the tank that eats alge and left over food? thank you

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.
