Sounds like you have a really nice setup. Salvini and Convicts are much higher up the aggression scale than what you have in there. I think if you add either of them you are risking the peaceful aquarium that you are enjoying. If you must add another cichlid you would be better off with something like a Blue Acara. What about another school of fish or some loaches? There are plenty of other fish you could add besides another cichlid. Good luck.

OK, you answered your own question then. Definitely do not add a Convict or Salvini. What about a group of Yo-Yo loaches or if you really want another cichlid how about a pair or small group of Rainbow Cichlids - Herotilapia Mulitspinosa? They only get 4 or 5 inches and are very peaceful even when they are breeding. I have never actually kept them but we had them in the fish store I worked years ago. From what I have read about them they do well with larger, more aggressive cichlids because they are so non- confrontational.
