Hikari is well known in the Cichlid community as a great food for all Cichlids. The entire Cichlid diet line is nutritionally balanced and easy to digest. It comes in a wide variety of sizes as well as sinking or floating pellets.
Rivers to Reef says: Our Cichlids love these pellets! Floating or sinking? It depends. If you have an overflow sinking pellets would be best as they do not get taken in by your filtration. No overflow? Then it's more preference. It would not be out of the question to mix the two as some Cichlids prefer the sinking to the floating and vice versa.
