I wouldn't put any malawis in there, but you could definitely do some smaller Tangs. Julies, leleupi, brichardi or pulcher, any of the shelldwellers...

I don't know a lot about cichlids but the only thing I would say is to avoid any cichlid that is too territorial, or that enjoys caves. I tried cichlids in a tank (35g) with 2 synosontis and it caused all sorts of problems because despite there being a few different places to hide, the synos were all too eager to claim them all, and the ciclids wanted them and so resorted to bullying each other and other fish.
