Stocking help: apistogramma agassizii

12 us gal tank - 19.5" long, 13" deep, 11" tall
Heavily planted (vals, Java Fern, couple of crypts, some dwarf hairgrass)

1 x Honey Gourami (trichogaster chuna)
2 x Peacock Gudgeons (tateurndina ocellicauda)
10 - 15 x Ember tetras (hyphessobrycon amandae)

Would 1 x Apistogramma agassizii (some red type) be possible in that set up? AqAdvisor says '90 - 100% stocking' (depending on amount of ember tetras) and 417% filtration max, no major issues, so of course I wanted to check with the people who actually know stuff about stuff

Just wanting opinions on the workability; I'm not interested in breeding at all, more concerned about compatibility, temperament, etc, don't want anyone getting et.

Thanks you guys!

I think adding the apisto would be pushing it, but I tend to be cautious about these things. (AqAd is handy, but take it's numbers as an approximation, only) If you keep up with water changes, I don't see any horrific problems.

I'm not experienced with gudgeons, though, so I'm not sure how they'd get along with the apisto.
2x20-longs, one heavily planted. Platy rancher. They. Won't. Stop. Breeding.

I'd be worried about the apisto going after the gudgeons, peacocks are shy little guys
