Most African's are purchased at a small size, approx 1-1/2 to 2". Since you are thinking about getting a larger tank, you would need to make that commitment for any African's you decide to get. Besides, shell dwellers as some else mentioned. But, honestly, we have 4 Brevis (Shell Dwellers 1M/3F) and that would be pretty boring in any tank without a few other fish to look at. You have to be careful with Brevis, they have razor sharp teeth and will bite you. I wear aquarium gloves when I am taking care of ours. And, because of their small size, they also tend to get picked on and will pick back.
This posting is pretty old and you may have already decided what to do. But, in case you are still trying to decide, just let me know. I'd be happy to help
