I'm open to other options also if any one has any. It will be a week or two before I'm ready to stock.

Wait did you say 20L?
I wouldn't advise any Apistos in there.
60L minimum for a pair in my opinion.

Picked up the sand on my way home today. Going to try to get it rinsed and in the tank. Possibly the swords and spider wood moved over. If I'm real lucky Ill get the filters moved around and at least one established filter on there.

Species are really different behavior wise .I just got the cichlid atlas and it is amazing how different each species will behave at different stages.
