With regards to feeding stick to twice a day... Smaller feeds which will assist in keeping the waste levels down. I usually give my cichlids about as much food as they can wipe out in about 30 seconds. As for the food you can go with a variation, I buy 4 or 5 different types of food like cichlid pellets, colour enhance pellets, algae wafers ...etc a combination of various suitable foods will give them a good balanced diet.
