I just got a 29 gallon and I think dwarf cichlids are the way to go. There are plenty of bright colored species and since they only get 2-3 inches you can keep a few of them along with some other small schooling fish. Here's my stocking plan: a cockatoo cichlid, a blue ram, a dwarf gourami, and maybe a blue cheek dwarf cichlid. Also a school of 8 or so neon tetras and 4-5 corydoras. Maybe you were thinking about African cichlids but I don't know much about them. I've only had South and Central American cichlids.

125 gallon tank:
2 Tiger oscars, 1 Electric blue jack dempsey, 1 Jack dempsey, 2 Bala sharks, 1 Firemouth, 1 Salvini, 1 Texas cichlid, 1 Pleco; All juveniles

29 gallon (in the works):
1 Blue ram, 1 Cockatoo cichlid, 1 Powder blue dwarf gourami, 1 Bolivian Ram, 8 Neon tetras, 4 Corydoras, 2 Bamboo shrimp, some ghost shrimp
