Dicrossus Maculatus? Checkerboard Cichlid? Lol... What size fishes are you comfortable with? I would have thought apistos will be just nice if it's just them in there.

It's just that I've recently caught an apisto bug.... Lol.... Just love my pair of Agassizii...

I dont think it is large enough for a pair of dwarf cichlids, be it checkerboard or apistos. Maybe a small school of celestial pearl danios?
