What should they be fed? We have vegetable based flakes with spurlina.

I will be posting pics soon :)

I feed mine cichlid pellets from Xtreme foods. I've also used new life spectrum. Both are outstanding products that help color the fish up and help them to stay healthy.

theyre herbivores, but like some meaty stuff once a week, spirulina, algae wafers, and occasional bloodworm is fine

mine really like zuccini. i can put 2-3 pieces in the tank and it won't last 2 days. you can try that and see how they take to it. they were a little slow to warm up to it at first but once they figured out what it was they fell in love with it.

New Life Sppectrum is ideal. It is the only thing I feed all my fish as well as all the cichlids at work (an LFS). I have not tried every possibel diet out there, but I have tried a lot and this is definitely the best. I would feed just New Life Spectrum, maybe add some fresh veggies like dark lettuce or zuccini. Nice little mbunas.

Nice guinea pig setup.
