I would definitely go with adding the Tetras anyway.
- Up to 5 larger-growing Buenos Aires Tetras (or Silver Dollars)
- or -
- Up to 8 mid-sized Black Widow or Serpae Tetras
Add Cichlids as follows,
- 8 initial baby-sized Angelfish, grown out to an eventual, single pair
- or -
- Add a single Red Spot Gold Severum
-
And, I would add one or two more Corydoras catfish to that 5 member school you have now, plus a single Ancistrus type (Bristlenose), or smaller-growing Pleco. :)

Ahhh well.... call me a 'purist', if you like.
(And yes, accidents DO happen)

So, to avoid those unfortunate things, I just like to set things up initially in a purpose-built aquarium stocking scheme, so that the Cichlids will basically spawn/breed true to their type, and most esp. their SPECIES.
- Two different Severum types? :?
- Uaru and Severum spawning problem? :(
-
Cichlid Mongrels - and most esp. HYBRIDS just really are NOT my thing. And, if you wind up putting a male/female combo Uaru-Severum, as the only Cichlids stocked in that aquarium? Heh.... well. :x

So yeah.... those are my stocking recommendations.
