Sorry to burst the bubble.....
The fish you have chosen are not suitable for the tank you have. They grow quite quickly to be 10" (25cm) adult size. Unless you plan on getting a much bigger 125g+ tank then NOTHING else can go in this tank. Hate to say it but you cant even keep one of these fish in this tank to adulthood.

Once they mature they will eat anything that can fit into their mouths.

You can only fit about 10-15 fish in a 60g tank and that is with correct stocking which cichlids need. You would be better off looking at yellow labs, acei, red zebra, rusty as beginner fish.
