Dwarf Cichlid question

I know this is sort of off topic, but I can't seem to find the
Apistogramma list, and I know a lot of plant people keep dwarf Cichlids,
and I figure that if people can talk about lawsuits, we can talk about
fish too, so here goes:

I have a 40-gallon planted tank (see, I'm tying it in to plants!) with 5
Amano shrimp, 3 albino Cories, and a 2" red-tailed shark. I would like to
add maybe two fish of some dwarf cichlid species, but I can't make up my
mind on which species. I don't fool with my water, but my tapwater pH is
8.5 or so (should get lower in my tank once I get my CO2 working better),
ammonia is undetectable and nitrate is low (I forget how low...).

Any suggestions? I want something that won't kill the other fish, but
won't die easily either. I considered rams, but I hesitated when I heard
that they are rather fragile... but if that is primarily a concern with
imported fish (whether from the Amazon on Singapore...), I can probably
track down some locally bred fish.

Any suggestions?
