Default "Lake Malawi" Cichlids Eating New Era

As you all may know African Cichlids - more specifically "Lake Malawi" graze on algae in the wild and is a good staple to their diet. Not sure if any of you heard of it or not but I've happen to stumble across this food product called New Era and just wanted to share with ya how much my guys love this stuff!

If you got a channel sub me and i'll check any vids you got out! I'm going to be making a new vid soon on my recent online order of fish

I'm sure my Lake Malawi Syno Catfish would eat the stuff. He eats everything he can get his whiskers on as it is.

Yea I think overall these are my favorite fish.. They have so much personality and color its hard not to like them...

The thing I like most is they are Territorial but hardy at the same time. Not real delicate opposed to a Neon Tetra

I'm a mbuna-keeper; I've got three tanks of them (55g/75g/125g), plus a small grow-out tank.

I also have frontosa's and tropheus (which are lake tanganyika cichlids).

I've posted some vid's on youtube under the user name 'y2kenny'.
