Matt from Buffalo, New York, calls and says he's gotten some Checkered Cichlids, which are also called Chessboard Cichlids, and formerly had the scientific name Crenicara filmentosa but apparently now are Dicrossus filamentosus. This species probably needs R/O water, and Matt says he put some peat moss pellets in his aquarium filter on top of the charcoal. Matt also says he emailed us some pictures, one of which is shown below of his new fish.
