The tank is fairly small for Geos and the fish you already have do not match up with geos..
There are dwarf South American cichlids that will fit better and have similar behavior and appearance to Geos ....Bolivian Rams for one?

If you're looking for cichlids with the grey/black/orange/red/yellow patterns look up apisto's, they would fit in the 160L tank.

Most dwarf cichlids will work. I suggest you do a little digging on google to find some you like, then narrow down their habits and needs.
