Nice tank, I really like your Melanochromis (looks like interruptus but could be mistaken).

As for small fish hiding spots, just add some piles of rocks at the bottom. If you don't want to add rocks, just lower your overall height and expand the base. Make sure to eyeball the size of your aggressor fish and make the new caves significantly smaller than those.

I had to do this to keep my pink con alive against my green texas while I found a new home for her. It works wonders, not only does it prevent the fish from attacking your smaller ones, they eventually learn that they can't get to them and give up on trying. I noticed a slow decrease in aggression after redesigning my rockwork.
