I got a pair of these guys over the weekend but can't manage a clear picture of them. I honestly have no idea what I got, they change their colors a lot especially during feeding times.

Looks like two species. One is a geophagus for sure. What's the chubby one?

How big are they? They look like some sort of acara (aequidens) to me.

Yes, I believe you're right they're krobia xinguensis....here's mine before I gave them away. You can compare them to yours. https://vimeo.com/173701584
