And would they work in my aquarium with the fish above?

I made a lot of common mistakes like this when I first entered cichlid keeping. Your tank may be too small for these cichlids (Demasoni). To keep them from destroying each other or other species you would need 8+ and a bigger tank. Shell Dwellers are great fish, can survive softer water and are more likely to be part of a community then most other Cichlid Species. Blue Rams, Bolivian Rams, etc. Your normal pet stores sometimes carry them and I am sure you LFS would as well.
