I would shoot for a pair of larger cichlids like Amphilophus trimaculatus, vieja synspilum, or Cichlasoma Festae with a small school of dithers.

I know it's a larger tank, but even then due to aggressive nature of a lot of the larger SA cichlids I highly doubt 6-8, 12-18 inch cichlids will work in that tank.

That many cons/fire mouths types will work.

What are the tank dimensions?

It's a half circle 57 inch diameter and 28 inch tall. I would like larger fish but not 6 fish that are a foot long.
