New to cichlid

Hi I have setup a 70 gallon planted aquarium. Originally I was told no cichlids were compatible with my stockafter more research I see that was wrong.
I picked up 2 little blue rams last week and fell in love. I am now looking for some other compatible cichlids or dwarfs

Here is my current stock:
10 harlequin rasbonas
6 boesmani rainbows
1 butterfly pleco
A few trumpet snails
2 blue rams
1 platy

Any suggestions? I am open to almost anything

Cleithracara maronii (keyhole cichlids)
Laetacara dorsigera, curviceps, araguaiae
Dicrossus maculatus, filamentosa
Apistogrammas species (way too many to list)
Mikrogeophagus altispinosa (Bolivian rams)
Pelvicachromis pulcher, taeniatus
Amatitlania multispinosa (rainbow)
Aequidens pulcher (blue acara, can be a bit fiesty)
Cryptoheros sajica, nanoluteus
Pterophyllum scalare, altum (angel fish)
Symphysodon aequifasciatus (discus)
Ivannacara sp.
Taeniacara sp.
Mesonauta festivus (festivum)
Crenicichla regani, compressiceps
Biotodoma cupido, wavrini

Normally I'd recommend Uaru, but they destroy plants

I'll add more as I remember lol

That's more then I thought time to do some more research. I was told to avoid angels with snails. Thanks for the guidance

Thanks again this way things are more narrowed down so I can really make a wise selection for once.

Here is an older pic right after I planted. I will add a new one when I have a chance. The plants have grown/been moved around. I also have a few stone caves on order that should be in soon. I also attached a pic of the rams I just got

I would add a nice big piece of dritwood, you could even look at doing discus with a tank like that
