got my Checkerboard Cichlids!

Haven't posted in a while since school but I just picked these up today. I got 3 and they're about 1/2 inch or less right now. First time I've ever seen them in person.

Lovely fish. Crenicara punctulatum, it is in our profiles.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thank you. I'm going to let them grow out in my discus tank and hope I end up with a 1 male: 2 females ratio and move them to their own 29 gallon.
