New to Cichlids

I have a 37 galloon (140 liters) cycling right now. I would like to try a planted cichlid tank. I know that some cichlids can be very aggressive. While others can be quite peaceful. i wanted to keep some with some sailfin mollies and cories. i was wondering what types of cichlids, if any, can i keep with the mollies and cories?

I keep Boliviam Rams. I've got great harmony in my planted tank. Other occupants in my tank are loaches, barbs, otos, a pictus & a bristlenose. I can highly recommend Bolivians; they are a wonderfully behaved cichlid, imo.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Just about any dwarf cichlid should be safe. Rams, kribensis, apistogramma, nannacara would all be good options. Keyholes would also work.
