If you get a 40gal, or even better a 55gal, mbuna cichlids would be just what you are looking for. They need hard water, so you could use coral sand as substrate, and lots of rocks to form caves and tunnels. Texas holey rock is perfect. In a 40, you could do 2 species of the more peaceful mbuna like yellow labs and rustys, in a 55 you can do a mixed community. They need to be overstocked, so filtration needs to be massive and water changes need to be 50% a week.
Research, research, research! Look into the dwarf mbuna - there are some stunning fish out there. Even a species tank of dimorphic mbuna can be amazing - pseudotropheus saulosi for instance. The males are blue, females yellow.
