It would all depend on the size of the aquarium and what the other occupants of the tank would be.

There are rams. They are awesome and do well in community aquariums.

Do not put them in anything smaller than a 20 gallon, but I highly recommend above 30.

Well there are apistogrammas, rams, even keyholes would work in there. I like the GBR and the Bolivian rams personally, but it's all up to you

I love rams I just got myself another one to go with my male, I'm crossing my fingers its a female it has all the qualities of a female it's very young still about half the size of the other one in my tank and nearly colorless except for black bars going all the way to her tail.

Yeah, rams (Bolivian, gold or blue) would work. Apistos. Keyholes. Maybe kribs, they can get fairly foul-tempered toward tankmates when spawning, but your tank is big, so I would guess it would be ok. Those are the classic community cichlids. Golden dwarves could be ok too.
