There are too many variables to provide a useful recommendation.
- What size is your aquarium?
- What cichlids do you want to get (Some are more aggressive than others)
-
A spawning pair of cichlids is going to be much more aggressive to other fish when protecting their eggs or newly hatched babies. Many cichlids will kill other fish in the tank kept with them when protecting their babies.
That would NOT be a good community aquarium!

Agree, you need to think as much about the size of your tank as the fish you plan to keep in it. Many cichlids grow to be fairly large fish, so keep that in mind when planning your tank.
