125 gal stocking suggestions?

Starting my first cichlid tank. 125 gal. 72x21x18 I think. Fluval 406 and eheims 2217 for filters.

I'm going with pool filter sand and holey rock. Any stocking suggestions? This is my first cichlid setup. I have done tropical before. I'd like a lot of color.

Need more specific characteristics you're looking for in a cichlid, it's like telling your real estate agent, "I want a house", way too broad lol :P

Cichlids from where? South and or central america? Africa? Madagascar? How big? 4-5", 6-8", 12"+??

Mean? Passive? Etc..
Personable? Less personable?

Sorry guys. New to cichlids. Little overwhelmed. I've been trying to research but there's so many if them! I would like personable ones. Semi-large. Lots of colors. Preferably not hitler mean.

125g hmm
Three severums, two fire mouths. And some silver dollars.

Maybe two oscars, extremely personable, but territorial and predatory.
