Too many fish!
Too small of an aquarium.
Don't stock to the size they are now (they're little babies!). Stock the tank to the size they are going to BE (Much Bigger!).
For the 4 foot long, 90 gallon sized aquarium - avoid pairs in any Cichlid species except the smaller growing Convicts.

As for the Green Terror? Hard to identify M/F with a fish that is 2.5 inches long. And, I wouldn't put another one in there with it anyway, unless you get a 6 foot long 150 - 180 gallon tank.

Hmmm.. well, 'schooling' is kind of a relative term, I guess. Even in REALLY big aquariums, a lot of the fish species that would work with your Cichlids won't exactly 'school' with each other. A loose group is about all that you can usually expect.
Recommendations?
- BIG Tetras! Buenos Aires Tetras are usually the easiest species to find. But really, any Tetra that will grow longer than 4 inches in adult length should work out pretty good.
- Silver Dollars. Kind of a fragile species actually. But, they have the benefit of being Very Fast. Silver Dollars will also exhibit probably the best 'schooling' behaviors.
- Giant Danios: These work because they can handle a good bit of Cichlid aggression. They tend to stay on the surface and will wander around just about everywhere in an aquarium. Interestingly, the more numbers of Giant Danios you stock with, the more they will tend to group together in an aquarium. In a six foot long tank, I would stock with a minimum number of 10 of these. 12 to 14 would probably be best. Be advised - the Giant Danio easily grows past 5 inches in adult length, and specimens over 6 inches long are not that uncommon! You'll need a 180 gallon sized aquarium to keep a large school of these things. :o
