GBRs are bottom dwellers. They'll swim in the mid/top areas at times, but they stake claim to the territory on the bottom. Most of the dwarf cichlids discussed here do, which is why they're not safe to keep together in a small footprint... and when I say "small," I mean anything less than 6ft long. They're extremely territorial (some more than others - the GBRs are little devils, for instance).
You'll be safe with most any tetras, if you're going to house any of the above dwarf cichlids.
