New chequerboard cichlids

My LFS just got in some chequerboard cichlids (Dicrossus filamentosus), Pelvicachromis taeniatus "Nigerian Red" and Apistogramma agassizii last week. They haven't had chequerboard cichlids in months so I had to get four (one male and three females) at US$15.99 each. The Apistogramma agassizii and Pelvicachromis taeniatus were going for US$60 a pair which was a little outside my price range.

I'm getting a new 20 gallon tank for the chequerboard cichlids this weekend (while they are in my quarantine tank). They appear to be eating well (frozen bloodworms and freeze-dried brine shrimp are their favorites) and actively swimming around the tank. I'll post pictures the first chance I get.

I went back to my LFS today and they just got in some Apistogramma borellii and Apistogramma iniridae. I don't remember how much the first were selling for but the latter were US$2.99 each. It makes me want to buy more than one tank this weekend.
