Do you think it will be ok to feed them twice a day or leave it to once a day
Well Cichlids, I would assume, are gluttons like any other fish (AHEM bettas!) and you should leave it to once a day. I noticed that when I dropped feeding from 2 times a day to 1 time a day, my goldfish and betta's colors almost immediately became more vibrant. Also it's good to stimulate their minds by making them swim to a certain part of the tank before you feed them. My goldfish have to swim in and out of a fish net in order to get served their meal.
7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats
