Alright guys, just wondering what would be an ideal feeding regiment for the fish I have. Here goes:

1 x 4" Blood parrot
2 x 3" Firemouth
1 x 4" Rock Krib (victorian)
1 x 2" Kribenesis
1 x 4" Pictus Cat

I currently feed a mix of cichlid staple, colorbits, and sinking shrimp pellets.

The shrimp pellets make the water nasty as the fish chew them and many of the sinking granules are sucked up from the gravel during water changes. They seem to like these foods MUCH better than the floating food though. So any suggestions would be welcome!
