    Default Unknowingly picked up some Julido Marlieri Cichlid

    So I picked up some really neat picking fish yesterday as they were unlike anything I've seen before. Turns out they were Cichlids, specifically Julido Marlieri an African cichlid. I know almost nothing about these guys. I looked up some videos and it looks like they eat pretty much anything. I tried putting a lettuce down and that didn't exactly work out, it's still there this morning. They seem to be very timid, but is a bit more open this morning. I have a couple of danios in there who seem to be eating up most of everything I drop before the cichlids can go up and eat em. Is there anything that is more preferred for them?

    NLS 1mm Cichlid or .5mm Grow pellets would be great, occasionally some spirulina flake for variety. Julies prefer rock piles for cover, one thing to be concerned about is the exact species though. The "Gombe" variant are highly aggressive, the rest of the clan not nearly as rough. J. marlieri should be fine in a 55, though they do prefer hard/alkaline water.
