Yep, those are the ones. Also important to have some veg matter in the diet. A spirulina based pellet is a good addition. Vitamin supplement is also a very good thing. Boyd's VitaChem is used my quite a few members. Saturate pellets before feeding. I use liquid vitamin C once a week for all my cichlids.

Hello there and welcome to OFL. I use liquid VitC on occasion, like when I cant get Boyd's or Seachem Nourish. Its available at any health food store, not cheap, but a little goes a long way. Intended for human consumption, so a little on the potent side for fish. A couple drops drops on their food, let it soak in and thats about it. I do prefer the vitamin supplement intended for fish, but sometimes hard to get for me.

Small cockroaches will be better, but not house roaches.
