Apistogramma eremnopyge-anyone keep these?

Also known as the strawberry cichlid. Thinking about getting a pair as a centerpiece for a heavy planted cube tank. Any info would be appreciated

Make sure they're a pair. As in they like each other and won't fight. Most apistos don't get on well in pair-only settings, but it depends on the individual.
