Buffalo Head cichlid

Just wondering how many people have buffalo heads. I was lucky and my lfs had some so I had to get them. After doing research and looking around I realized they are pretty hard to find. Just wondering how people accomodate them and how they do. I have my 5 in a 55 gallon with other community fish and they love it.

~~~55 Gallon Community~~~
5 Black Skirt Tetras
4 Tiger Barbs
3 Green Tiger Barbs
2 Albino Tiger Barbs
2 Buffalo Head Chichlids
2 African Dwarf Frogs
1 Sunburst Platy
1 Common Plecostomus (little guy that isnt growing much)

~~~55 Gallon Oscar Tank~~~
2 Tiger Oscars
1 Albino Tiger Oscar
2 Convicts
1 Common Plecostomus

I just picked up a group of 5 or so juveniles that are all at about an inch and a half.

Are they South American or African? I've seen them in Cichlid books only.

They would be Africans specifically from the Congo.
