Depends on what you consider bland, I actually find my firemouth to have very beautiful coloration. Also there different species of silver dollar then the ones who are just plain silver.
You could do a breeding pair of Oscars if you wanted, It would take getting a large number of them (most people use 6) and waiting for 2 to pair off then finding a new home for the other 4.
Id guess any semi-aggressive cichlid that grows to at least 4-5 inches would be a fine tank mate, once again it comes down to the individual fish. One you might wanna try is Blue Acara. I'm planning on one in with my sev and to my understanding the different species traded uner that name tend to be more peaceful.
And while i said many people advise against convicts there are those who say they work fine, like i said depends on the fish.
Also as i said earlier, my understanding of oscars is only from limited experience when i was young and reading up on them.
