Midas Cichlid Food consists of a broad range of items such as high quality cichlid flakes, cichlid pellets, krill which can be either frozen or freeze-dried, earthworms, European night crawlers and live feeders. Vegetable based foods are important to their diet so spirulina flakes or pellets should be included in their diet.
Earthworms or European night crawlers are nice supplements to aid in the production of eggs and stimulate breeding. Worms should be given with caution perhaps weekly as a treat because they are high in protein. There is no single way to feed Midas Cichlids but generally larger cichlids do well with a minimum of two feedings a day. Perhaps morning and evening or try feeding several times a day but offer smaller portions.
Remember don’t overfeed because food can the combination of fish waste can accumulate quickly in the aquarium. One tip would be to use an automatic fish feeder which will dispense the food at regular intervals thus automating the time and quantity provided to your cichlids. Remember to perform water changes once a week at about 50 percent. The key to remember is that Midas Cichlids are a omnivorous species which means they basically eat everything so try to maintain a broad and balanced diet.
