I recently set up a small tank with two Malawi Cichlids (one Yellow Lab and ...uh, oh, mental block...one blue and black stripey one...can't remember the technical name.)
I've read MANY conflicting recommendations for feeding. I'm gathering that it's not an exact science, and somewhat of a personal preference, but...how often is everyone feeding?
One book I read said 2-3 times per day, another said 2 or 3 times per day but if you're home feed them a very small amount many times a day, most places say just TWICE per day, others have said once a day, one poster said they only feed their Cichlids 3 times a week.
I know to err on the side of NOT overfeeding, and you only feed as much as they can eat in a few minutes.
So what is the general concensus for actual # of times per day? Please vote...
