10g- pair of cichlids possible?

Hi all,
I have several tanks set up and I have an empty 10g ready to be stocked.
It's planted only with java ferns due to the heavy frogbit I have at the surface. I really like low light/driftwood/minimal plant scapes!

I am not keeping cichlids at all. Is it possible to keep a pair if dwarf cichlids in a 10g or will there be too much aggression?

Maybe Ill get an axolotl...

I wouldn't do 2 dwarf cichlids in that size tank. Maybe 1 cockatoo cichlid or ram, but not 2.

NO WAY FOR AXOLOTLS. They will barely be able to move in that when they reach adulthood.

Shell dwellers maybe ?
But they'd be better in a non planted set up.
