That could be for starter "big" fish in that size tank not really a good size for grown up "big" fish.

Cichlids can be aggressive, they aren't really my knowledge base. All the aggressive big fish I think of are really too big for a 46G when mature. More like the 100-180G size.

Are you thinking group of fish, singular or pair of fish?

Medium size aggressive fish like African Cichlids could go in a tank your size.

Iím unfamiliar with the footprint of that tank, but you could probably get s couple of keyhole cichlids Kribensis or apistogramma, they are not nearly as big as their cousins but they are still stunning and you get to have some nice dither fish as well
