Partner for Male Apisto Agassizi

I currently have an Apistogramma Agassizi Double Red in a 20 gallon long heavily planted community tank with 5 Kuhli loaches, 6 cardinal tetras, and 10 celestial Pearl danios. I have a solid setup in terms of water parameters and hiding spots within the tank.

I would like to add another apistogramma to the tank if reasonable.

-Does it have to be the same exact species (Agassizi double red)?
-Can I add another male or will there be aggression issues?
-If I add a female I would have no interest in breeding them. Would that cause problems if I don’t give them the proper environment to breed but just want them to peacefully cohabit?

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

Keep it at that single male.
2 Males ill be guaranteed mayhem in that tank size. Adding a female will result in breeding behaviour and a female is easily able to terrorize the whole tank including the male.

Do not any fish, please. It will not make you happy, and may endanger the lives of at least some of the fish.
