For big community tanks, I think the more peaceful varieties of cichlids make for good centerpiece fish. Many of them look good, don't require (or even like) groups and have behaviors that are a nice contrast to the behaviors of schooling fish.

Festivums, keyholes, dwarf cichlids like rams, kribensis, apistogramma, etc. all would be nice in a community tank. Geophagus also can work in community tanks, but you'd probably want to avoid really small fish that they might eat on accident.
