I'm new here and can't offer advice, but I'm gonna assume people will want to know your tank size.

For algae, plecos do well with cichlids. Maybe get a bristlenose. I have 2 pictus with mine and so far so good. Some people have had success with them and some haven't so it's a hit or miss, same with corydoras. Maybe someone else will chime in here...

Should've asked before my answer but what cichlids do you have, what size and your fire eel?

I love your fire eel, and the tank. You should try to figure out what ones you have. A lot are very aggressive but every individual fish is different. Try googling cichlid profiles and look through them or go to the LFS you bought them at and write down their scientific names. Most cichlids don't have common names. How long have you had them?
