Most africans are fine on protien food, like blood worms or feeder guppies. There are only some that shouldnt be fed veggies like Tropheus Duboisi. For the ones that do eat protein, feeding them veggies here and there is good too, and they like it Very Happy .

Cichlid Pellets have optimum protein supplement. What probably affects the fish is the protein imbalance that sets in at times because of excessive use of feeder fish or other high protein stuff.

I have seen Africans that are brought up just on cichlid pellets. Very Happy They have good steady growth and seldom suffer from imbalances leading to other problems.

I guess protein food fed in right amounts don't hurt fish.
