They don't like flakes for too long...now when I have a little one, I just start it out on the hikari mini pellet...and everyone I've had go absolutely nuts over them. It's a good pellet and it grows them fast :thumb:
well, There OK. But Hikari Cichlid gold or gold bio plus really bring colors out. More than any other pellet on the market. Cichlid staple was there first Cichlid pellet. They have had 4 out since then.
