Colorful SA Cichlids

Anyone have any suggestions on an SA cichlid (or two) that I could add to my tank to add some color?

See my tank profile below....

My main problem is that with the exception of the Red Jewel, all of the fish blend in relatively with the background. I love the cichlids, and really didn't get them for the color, but my wife is now asking for some color in the tank. All I've got for color is the jewel and the red crayfish! I love it, but she wants some variety. And, since it's in the middle of her 'office,' I'm feeling obligated to try!

My main concern is getting something that will basically 'get-along' with the other fish in the tank. Any ideas? Could I add some African cichlids to it?

With the exception of the GT and the Jewel (which are 8" long), the other fish are all 3-4" long.

You can't really mix African rift lake cichlids and SA cichlids.
