Question about stocking...don't kill me!

I was given a smaller tank that might be 25g(24X12X12) roughly. Is there any kind of NON-DWARF cichlid that might be able to be put in there? Labs maybe? Suggestions?

I have no idea what "shellies" or "multies" are either.

Shellies are shell dwellers from Lake Tanganyka. The hang out in shells. My personal favorite of these is neolamprologus occelatus, and incredibly fiesty fish for its size.

Another thought is neolamprologus bricahrdi. These are not shell dwellers, but I believe you could have a pair in that size. Maybe someone else can say if these would be OK in such a small tank.
