Altifrons are one of the nicest eartheaters however they can be aggressive and also get to about 12" (1ft) in size.
Another thing to consider is what fish do you have available locally? Shipping larger specimens suitable for a 180g tank can be expensive.
Last time i checked the water here was very soft but ill have to check again on that one, available to me within 2 or so hours travel is:
Rios , argyro, altifrons, orange head Araguira...
also i may be able to get...
Green Horseface (S. Leucosticta)
Geo Steindachneri (Red Hump)
Any input or recommendations would be appreciated id be looking at a 'starter' beginners type earthie for now
