Future 30 gallon tall stocking help?

Hello everyone I have a 30 gallon tall and I was looking into some stocking options for the future. I can't stock it now because I have a killer African cichlid.
The current stocking is
Cynotilapia afra (killer)
Metraclima estherae
Female convict.

In the meantime I have been looking for other possible stocking of semi-aggressive fish.
I am interested in:
Firemouths
Keyholes
Rams
A cat fish

I wouldn't know how to stock these fish. & I am open to any ideas

Is the what your interested in for after you rehome the Africans? If so I'd pick one of those cichlids and then mix in community fish around them

FYI keyholes and rams are peaceful, not semi aggressive, with keyholes being some of the most peaceful cichlids on the planet

Is go with the keyhole cichlids because they are slightly hardier when it comes to change in ph or other parameters

I did some research and it says that firemouths are very hardy fish

So I looked over those fish and I would probably get the firemouth because of their beautiful colors. Which schooling fish would be good with him in my 30 g tall? I also wanted to get some cat fish or pile is maybe. Any suggestions ?
