I had one in but took it out because they didn't seem to like it. I have a waterfall style filter that does a good job of airating the water. but now they seem to stay closer to the top of the water. Good for me because I can see them but is it bad for the fish? What do you think?

cichlids do not need an air hose, if your filter turns the water over often enough then that will be fine. Check your gallons per hour and make sure there is 100% turn over every few hours or so
