I like groups personally. How about another 1 or 2 Acara? I currently have 2 and they get along and look great together. Previously I had 3 which also worked well.

I would like a group of acaras, but I'd like to avoid the fuss of breeding and all......were yours 3 all males? or did they pair up? and what happened eventually?

I'm not sure of the sex as they look pretty much the same. They never bred as far as I know. One died - I think of old age or some other unavoidable ailment - and the other two are still living peacefully in a tank with other SA cichlids. They've always been mellow.
