I've kept P. taeniatus fry with their parents until they were an inch or so in size. When they grew large enough to crowd the tank I sold a bunch on Aquabid, where they were snapped up, & donated the...

A 4" acutirostre should be fine with 2 1/2 to 3" ansorgii. I wouldn't get very active dither fish, though, since ansorgii are very deliberate eaters & may not get enough food.

Apistogramma agassizi. They're awsome! I bred them in a 10 gallon with a substrate of oak leaves. They're not picky eaters - flake is eagerly accepted, but they need soft water to breed.
