    I always loved the south american eartheaters! They are a whole genus of docile and beautiful cichlids. Great scavenegers, nice colors, and they can tolerate almost any other cichlids. Not to mention, if you use sand as a substrate, they will 'sift' through, pushing clouds of sand out their gills.
    I keep 1 male redhumped eartheater with 3 females. They almost lay eggs simultaneously.

    I did a Geophagan primer some time ago, including your red humps. It's here. This post is about passive Cichlids, aka Mellow Fellows.

    Just a bump . . .

    The keyhole is also a rather easily obtained and mellow cichlid, and is reasonably hearty. I have close to 50 fish now (not in the same tank) ranging from $2.99 to $49.99 and my little $11 3'' keyhole is by far my favorite.

    +1 to Oscars being docile. However from my experience albino oscars are more mellow than their black tiger/red. I even had a 6.5" albino tiger oscar I had to sell due to him being bullied by black tiger oscars smaller than him. I have a big 9.5" Albino Red Oscar who is very mellow, it doesn't mean he'll let himself be bullied but he'll never start a fight unlike my other big tiger oscars.
    So if you want a mellow oscar, my opinion is to get an albino oscar.
    One more mellow guy IMHO is a Chocolate Cichlid. I have two, a 5" one is in the Oscar tank and is totally fine, he doesn't get bullied and does not bully anyone. The other one is 3.5" and is in a 20g grow out tank with Gouramis and a Dojo Loach. Absolutely zero aggression. Here's a 1 month old pic of one of mine, now it's 5"

    Also a Green Terror is a great and mellow Cichlid. It's really beautiful and very docile. Does not bully anyone, lives in an Oscar tank. Here's my 5"

    I recently purchased four Bolivian Rams. I absolutely love them; they have so much character. They're so hard to sex and the fish salesman had a hard time getting my requested 1 male to 3 females. I think it's actually the other way around by the way they're acting. I think I may have three males to one female.

    At any rate, they could care less about the other fish in the tank, in fact, the Rosy Barbs are so hyper they often graze right over them and the Rams are not phased.

    The Rams are in quite a battle over territory, almost viciously. I'm hoping they calm down, no fin shredding as of yet. They're fascinating fish, I just hope they don't tear each other up while they claim their corners of the tank.
