African cichlids

Im contemplating on making my new tank (if i end up buying it) an african tank, in saying that need to research them alot more, would anyone recommend some "beginners" cichlids that arent too aggressive and wont cross breed with other cichlids recommended?
by the way the tank i may be getting will be a 55Gallon (4Ft)

Yellow labs, rusty, acei, afra, red zebra - (not with the yellow labs though - they will cross breed), lithobates. acara

look at 3-4 species with a maximum of 12-15 fish in 1 male to 3-4 female ratio.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
