I would suggest no cichlids. Maybe one ram or a pair or shell dwellers but that's about all

Usually at least 20 gallons. Your is a about 15. Bigger is always better for cichlids of any kind

I've got a similar sized tank as a hospital tank now, but I started it to grow out my schoolers for my biotope tanks. Looking at it empty in my honest opinion, I can picture 3 diamond tetra, 5 lf blue or purple leopard danio, 3 dwarf chain loach and 2 oto cats or a couple snails... This is just me daydreaming though
