Oh yes cichlids have teeth :) This is a Dovii which is an out and out predator but they all have small teeth on the jawline and then bigger grinding plates in the roof of their mouth.

An interesting little fact I learned once. Cichlids have more muscles in their mouth than the human hand and can do more things than the human hand. Watch them excavate a spawning site or move eggs and young to see this for yourself.
