As a killie and apisto guy, I keep the two together a lot. Gardneri are
not a species I'd have in a dither role. Big old males love apisto
territories, and will hammer smaller male agas who try to steal their
terrain. They're also very efficient, stealthy hunters.
Small Epiplatys, and Chromaphyosemion are lovely surface fish for an
apisto tank. Fundulopanchax and most Aphyosemions aren't good
candidates. South American annuals often have very clear ideas of how to
get a cichlid feast.
