Character cichlid

Just wondering if anyone can suggest some interesting character cichlids I can research apart from the obvious choice Oscar. More specifically I'm interested in South and Central American interesting personality cichlids. Thanks

- Amphilophus hogaboomorum
- Amphilophus trimaculatus
- exCichlasoma pearsei
- Nandopsis haitiensis
- Parachromis dovii

Couple I could think of off the top of my head. When larger cichlids are kept singularly they tend to develop more "personality" then if kept with other fish.

I wouldn't even to attempt to keep any of those in the same tank. Most of those are the CA bad boys and a 150 or 180 would be the smallest tank I'd consider for a pair or single fish. With the Dovii needing a much larger tank that's wider than 24".
