If you want new world species, I'd say angelfish or a convict cichlid would be ok.

Lets say this stock for an example,

1x male convict
1x male firemouth
1x male severum
1x male salvini

1x male blue acara



Would this work ?

You'll have fighting problems more than likey, salvini especially are a pretty aggressive species at times

There's a large variety of Africans too. Haplochromis' Protomelus' or Nimbochromis' species. 6-12" depending on species.

Of course Aulonocara (peacocks) which are about 5" as well
