    Would not recommend it, as the odd treat you might be fine, but Mbuna any way are vegetarian, and will developed bloat quite quickly with bloodworms. Dem's are especially susceptible too bloat

    thanks for the heads up, even in the community tank i only use the blood worms as an occasional snack, not a daily food. But I will be careful with the cichlids now that i know.
