Dither Fish for CA and SA Cichlids

I currently have Giant Danios, but I am quite tired of them. They are not appealing to look at, at all. What other dither fish would you suggest for my setup (check it out in my signature)?

125Gal: 7 Silver Dollars, 1 Albino BN Plecos, 1 Green Terror, 1 Gold Severum, Red Severum, 8 Rio Cahals, and 2 Festivum

55Gal: 3 German Blue Rams, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 Super Red Pleco, 9 Bloodfin Tetras, and 9 Oto Catfish

29Gal: Quarentine/Hospital Tank

20Gal: Female Pastel Ball Python

Columbian tetra's, Congo tetra's have worked for me in the past. but if too young,,(small) they may become snacks rather than dither's.
Could grow smaller ones out a bit in another tank?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
