Need smaller cichlids

Got a 29 gallon with 6 African cichlids in it but it is over stocked.

What are the names of the smaller cichlids that could be kept in a 29 gallon and how many could I get?

Look into Tanganyikan cichlids, they're probably a better choice since mbunas will require a bigger tank.

All those fish look really cool but they look like they would be hard to find locally.

I would imagine a good store could get any of them in for you if you asked. I've also heard good things about buying from LiveAquaria, though I've never bought from them.
