Welcome back to the hobby. I've been keeping fish for 47 years and so much has changed but the basics are still the same. Water changes and good food.

The technology has improved significantly though

Welcome back. Filters have changed, lights have changed, water here is about 0 hardness so needs buffering .
As Joseph said. Water change is the key to good growth and good food.
Also starting with good stock.
What
Kind of cichlids? African or South America?

Welcome to BCA and back to the addiction.

The biggest change technology-wise for fw tanks is the lighting has gone from fluorescents & PCs to LEDs now. Much more energy efficient and more control over colours and spectrums. Most people are still using HOB and/or canister filters, just like 20 years ago.
