i would also suggest apistogramma cacatuoides, they are one of the easiest dwarf cichlids to keep.

There's some very colourful dwarf cichlids like german blue rams, bolivian rams, apistogramma agassizii, apistogramma cacatuoides, apistogramma steindachneri, dicrossus filamentosus. Are a few to look at.

GBR are not fragile. ( at least in my experience ) they were one of the first fish I got, when I didn't know much about fish keeping. And they survived through everything! I've switched them between tanks, introduced a 3rd GBR and all 3 are doing great. I really don think they are as fragile as people point them out to be. Just make sure your temp is around 78-80
