If there are plenty of hiding places, then you should be good with keeping the other females in the tank with the pair. They should be able to stay out of each other's way.

Shoot. I kept 3 in my 55. I'd say at around 8 would be safe. 1-2 males and 6-7 females.

Yeah, checkerboards are super peaceful. They group cichlids, so keeping them in groups of 6-8 with 2-3 males and 4-6 females is fine. Checkers are cool little guys; check them out.
