Jamie, if you mention your water parameters it will allow members to provide suggestions since cichlids occur in very divergent water parameters. B.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

with not knowing your water params some suggestible "hardy" cichlids would include oscars and a few african cichlids can give you more selections when we know what the water ph is
