Cichlid with guppies?

This may be impossible to do but I'm looking to find a cichlid that could work in a 30g with guppies. I want something that would 'trim' the fry down but leave the adults alone and not bother my khulis either.

I was looking at laetacara curviceps but not sure if that would be a good fit, unless maybe I get a lone one and not a pair like I had originally thought about. Any ideas? I could be tempted by a different kind of fish but I'm very partial to cichlids.

Keyhole cichlids? Rams? Apistos?

So I tried That Fish Place and they have no idea when or if they'll be getting any keyholes in, so in going to try petsmart and some other pet place and see if they have them, if not would the curviceps work? And should it be a single one or would a pair be ok (on either fish)?

My local petco has tiny little keyhole cichlids out the wazoo. I think a pair of curviceps would work

Wow so yeah, petsmart and pet supplies plus don't have any keyholes either. Going to check one or two other places but it probably is going to be the curviceps now.

No, PA. It's not a huge deal, it just kinda surprised me that for a pretty mellow sounding cichlid they seem so hard to find around here
