What if they are both males and there are no females in the tank?
You can try I guess. But at the same time they are not going to show their best colors without females in the tanks. Both species have spectacular coloration during breeding. In "off-season" they are just another normal looking dwarf cichlid.

Look for apistodave on Aquabid. He usually has both curviceps and dorsigera along with a lot of other dwarf spieces. Seems like a nice guy, pretty sure he has helped me a few times on apistogramma.com

Dorsigera are really peaceful fish and when they do spawn the color is unreal.

Jay,

Do these fish scare, eat, or bother in any way Amano shrimps or Otos?

I ask becasue I have some Apistos that I wish I didn't have because they don't let shrimp or otos do anything else but hide without even moving.

Mine where about 4 inches in size, just look bigger because of the deep body.

I didn't have a problem with them chesing otos. I did have some cherry shrimp in with them and I do not recall them chasing them, once in a blue moon. Granted the 3 I had eventually disappeared but not sure they ate them. They have pretty small mouths.
