If you are looking for easy to breed cichlids again there are tons out there. I would defiantly start small. For central american cichlids you could get convicts, HRP, firemouth cichlids, etc. For africans I would do brichardi, shell dwellers (ocellatus gold, brevis, etc.), leleupi, or some small julidochromis. For south american I would maybe do a pair of blue acaras, angelfish, etc. All these fish can breed in tanks of 20-30 gallons. As for filtration that is up to you. There are tons of options out there. Some people prefer sponge filters, some prefer HOB's, some prefer canisters it really just depends. A lot of figuring out what you want is going to require some research on your own. I would google the fish I suggested and do some reading on them then select one pair you want to keep.
