With your soft water you would do best with the American cichlids rather than African cichlids which prefer harder water.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I would go for Apistogramma cacatuoides (Cockatoo) or Pelvicachromis pulcher (Kribensis) they can live in a wider range of water parameters than other cichlids and are both extremely rich in color.

Kribs are what I vote. I strongly recommend them.
