Okay - could be wrong, but maybe it is Dwarf Banded Shellie (Neolamprologus multifasciatus).

Close, but no cigar. The stripes through the tail fin nail them as L. similis, not multi's.

I also think they are Multi's and not Similis....similis have a different shaped head and the bright blue eyes are typical of Multi's. Multi's also have the striping in the tail...

I looooove them....congrats on your amazing and fascinating new little guys

I would also say multi's, interesting active little fish. Good luck with them.

I could be wrong, after looking at pics of both they're quite difficult to tell apart. Multi's are much more common though, and more colonial in their behavior.
