Disc-shaped cichlids, severums, uarus, loaches (not serpentine species , of course). Basically anything that won't fit in its mouth should be fine. If yours is a Senegal species, you have plenty of options. Endlis and some species however will try to gorge several fish.

I have some discus tetra Brachychalcinus orbicularis and redfinned tetra Tetragonopterus argenteus with mine.
also I have a school of 9 (4+ inch) clown loaches) and a Fire eel Mastacembelus erythrotaenia
the upper level is occupied by 5 apollo sharks Luciosoma Sp.

Amazingly enough I also have a pair of jewel chichlids Hemichromis bimaculatus, which although only 3-4 inch see off my 18 inch ornate if he gets too close to them.

hope that gives you some ideas
