New member, many ideas...but could use advice

New member, many ideas, so many choices, so little space!

New member with a 55g African mbuna tank, all well there but the other 20 gallon tanks I have laying around make me crazy. I love cichlids though I know I cannot house most cichlids for a long period of time in a 20g. Got a 20g with two green severums (2 inches) these guys have an appetite, and another 20g with two Jack Dempseys also 2 inches long. All is fine for now but I know it will be a matter of time before I have to give these guys up and I dont want to get bigger tanks.
Any hints on what smaller cichlids I could keep either African or new world in a 20g long?

Thanks in advance
