My recomendations require that you STRICTLY keep a pair or trio....it will work....I've done it!!
I have no expierience with the Lemon cichlid, but nearly forgot about Brichardi which could work, (pair only).
I have kept brichardi in 20 gal tall tanks, but ultimately their propensity for producing fry,, result's in more metabolites in the tank than I care for given relatively small volume of water not to mention,,finding outlet for fry.
Should go without saying that Fry produced by nearly all cichlid's are fiercely protected,so the fewer tankmates,,the fewer issues with damaged,dead ,tankmates even in larger tanks.
I still think shell dweller's would be best option.
