Love the last line, Dog!
Yeah, rams and apistos can do it in a small tank. A. steindachneri has been know to spawn in five-gallon holding-buckets. These are the largest apistos, with males getting 4+ inches. Just don't stress the rams (lack of cover, lights coming on at 4 AM, letting the water quality deteriorate, etc.) and they should be fine. If they are the only fish in there, it should be a stable, stress-free environment.
