In other words, they won't pine away on their own so as solitary specimens you don't need to worry about them getting sick from being stressed out due to lack of companionship. That said, these sorts of fish have really interesting behaviors and watching them interact with one another (especially if you've got both sexes) is reason enough to get a group. Not to mention how good dwarf cichlids tend to look once they color up during mating rituals and all that. But yes, apistos are generally a lot less aggressive during spawning than kribs and are much smaller, so if you do want to do this sort of thing in a community tank without causing problems they're definitely a better choice than kribs.
Sweet, def looking into getting a trio of apistogrammas, I'll just have to see if my LFS stocks them, or where I can get them!

What is everyone's rule on stocking order for their aquariums? Least aggressive to most aggressive? Size? etc....

Usually I try to find the best combination of most hardy to least hardy while also trying my best to add the most aggressive fish to the tank last.
