The SA eartheaters didn't make anyone's list? They sure do mine. The colors are subtle till the light catches them just right, they are more mellow and laid back. I'm not sure I could get into Africans (well maybe shellies) - but I guess I like more mellow fish.

Although I can't think of any cichlids I don't like, I would have to say the Tanganyikan shell-dwellers are my favorite. Everything I love about cichlids can be illustrated in a tank full of Neolamprologus multifasciatus.

Neolamprologus multifasciatus
Lamprologus stappersi

I love my Albino Tiger Oscars - they're aggressive with other fish (I only keep a pleco and a red-tailed shark with them now, and the shark hides a lot)... but they're active, and always love to see me - they definately recognize me as the food source, and follow me as I walk by the tank.

I have varied chiclids in my community tanks these include bolivian rams, angel fish, and firemouths all of which get on fine. However are you looking at african chiclids like the lake malawi if so I think you will find most can be very boisterous.

lots of luck
