Spunky little Fish

I wasn't sure what to expect with these little guys as I couldn't find a lot of info. They seem to like warmer water - they are more active at 77 than 75. The group I received took to eating Krill Flake right away. Their behavior is different from other Cichlids I've had. They dart & hover, while they inspect you. I purchased them for a 75 Gallon, but I've got them in a 5 gallon QT. I think they would be a bit less shy with dithers (Mutt guppies maybe?) They are small and I wonder if I can get 6 more for the big tank? I LIKE THEM!
