Salvini cichlids?

Does anyone here have actual experience with these stunning cichlids I have been contemplating getting some but all literature describe them as these super aggressive antisocial monsters.
Can I keep them with anything else and are they like other large cichlids that will destroy any attempt at aquascaping and how available and breedable are they?

I used to keep these years ago. I kept them in a 99g tank with other large South American cichlids. They are rough tough bruisers that like to change your best attempts at aquascapeing.
I've kept them also. Beautiful fish. Beastly temper. And say goodbye to your aquascape plans.
