-Angels
-Firemouths
-any Apistos
-GBRs
-Keyholes

Does it have to be a cichlid? What about
-Pearl Gouramis
-Moonlight Gouramis
-Opaline Gouramis
-Gold Gouramis

Also, what else did you want to stock in this tank?

I would probably do keyholes, just because they'll fill out the tank a bit more.
If you do rams you could get the different colors though! Like a pair of electric blues and golds.

the lfs has all of those! we were looking at keyholes they are sweet.

we were thinking we would have alot of bottom area open because we don't plan on getting a pleco or any other catfish

2 keyholes and 2 rams would be fine IMO. I have kept them together flawlessly. YOu have enough space that everybody should be able to get their own territory.
