I was just unsure if they can be housed properly in that small of a tank.
As far as dealing with the fry, I know there is a bit of a market for cheap cichlids in this area and I am closely affiliated with a few pet stores and a friend that has turned his garage into a fish house and sells frequently.

I disagree about the rams/ you should go with dwarf chiclids but never checkerd they are most difficult. there are tons of dwarf chichlids to choose from rams are about the size of dwarf gouramis mabe a little bigger but not by much there are plenty of dwarfs to choose from try checking / the reason I disagree about the rams is the max number I think I know is a couple pairs=4 in all if you have enough items to choose from then the territories should be established but could result in fights because of lack of diriffiation in teritorries this chichlids in general dwarfs are quite a bit more peaceful than medium and large chichlids plus with any chichleds the parents take care of fry except angelfish in some cases the parents eat eggs and fry hope this tells you what chichlids to choose from.
