Malawi or Victorian, due to their milder aggressive nature, beautiful colors and great personalities, and they tend to stay on the smaller cichlid size, mine range from 4-6 inches as adults I'd guess, maybe 7.

First is one of my juvie lake Victoria ( male) second is my hogs in my 140g thinking they are going to get some food. The auratous ( sp) is mild mannered and not a terror, saved him from a bad tank compatability , there is a ob peacock who is act the aggressor in there and an ele blue who is starting to grow fins in nice after a few months .... He was in with a few jacks and convicts, thought to be dying... I can't wait to set up my 75g... My brother in law is giving it to me...

In a 150 I would go with lake Tanganyika, there is a tons if choices for fish in different colors and body shapes. Do to the fact they occupy different areas of the tank you have a good mix w/o to much aggression. I was recommend 3-4 species for my 90 gal so I would imagine you could do 5-6 species.

Here's a some you may like:
Altolamprologus compressiceps or Calvus
Cyprichromis leptosoma
Ophthalmotilapia ventralis
'Lamprologus' multifasciatus
Julidochromis
Eretmodus cyanostictus
Xenotilapia singularis
Tropheus

www.davesfish.com is a great place to look at allot of the fish from the 3 lakes i recommend checking it out.
