In my 75g tank I have a salvini with a group of loaches. My salvini is very skidish (which I read that most are), and I am looking for suggestions for other cichlids to put in with him to liven up the tank. So far I tried a (so called) red devil which Got attacked all the time. I found out that it wasnt really a red devil just another breed of cichlid that looks alot like the red devils. anyone have any other suggestions.

There are a lot of fish that will be ok with that fish. A Salvini is real pretty fish. Convicts, Green Terror, Fire Mouth, Jack Dempsey, Texas Cichlid, Manganese and you could even try a Black Shark. The Salvini in my exsperience has been one of the mellower Cichlids like the Firemouth. I would suggest some caves for it to hide in. They like to hide a lot if they feel scared. One of my favorite fish though.

I'd try a Firemouth or a Jack.... The Green Terror might push around the tank..... Texas is going to get a foot....... try a severum......
