Same here except that I have never stopped giving them bbs. Now they will eat anything! But they still get Artemia and daphnia as well as a homemade food, bug bites tropical and occasionally other dried food as well. I recently got some dwarf pike cichlids, they will not eat dried food, they look at it but don't go for it even when they see other fish taking it. They do eat the frozen (thawed) homemade food though, which is mainly fish and shrimps with a bit of vegetables and dried food blended in.I was able to get my wild apisto to eat fluval bug-bites via mixing it with bbs - after they started eating it i stopped feeding bbs and all was well.
