South America Cichlids

I just cycled my 125 gallon long tank and am interested in making it a south american cichlid tank. I was wondering which cichlids would be the best to put into the environment. I want the tank to be aesthetically pleasing. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

well personally, once long ago when I kept them, Firemouths and convicts were my favorite!
Firemouths being #1
I also had oscars, but got too big and had to trade them in, not to mention they ate every new addition smaller than them.....but adorable when they are babies
