Malawian Cichlids Favorite Foods?
What do your Malawians like to eat? Any live foods by chance? Just curious...
Re: Malawian Cichlids Favorite Foods?
Mbuna cichlids(except labidochromis and melanochromis) eat predominantly veggies, algae and other greens.
Haps are piscivores and therefore will eat small fish and will not hesitate to eat even their fellow small cichlids. It is not advisable to mix both as their diet differs. If the mbunas eat the meaty foods, they suffer from digestive upsets. Their digestive system is different from the piscivores and is not designed to take meaty foods. Meaty foods take a long time to be digested I believe.
Speak of the devil, do you know any good resources to learn more about Malawi classification?
Also what if I have a mixture of cichlids? Do I need to be concerned about their individual diets?
