I like keyholes. They get to be around 5 inches and are very calm. They are awesome for community tanks! And they need about thirty gallons. So what sized tank do you have?

What do you mean by 'starter'. They all require good water conditions. Some are more sensitive than others. I would definitely not recommend rams, discus, or any wild caught fish. Angels are pretty laid back.

What size tank do you have? that will help determine what cichlids you could keep.

Also, what tankmates would it need to live with? Do you have other fish already?

Then yes, keyholes would work well.

No, you could do some Bolivian rams, or some German blue rams, but they do better in more established tanks
