Good looking tank and peacock, that peacock has some awesome color for his size!
I would add, say five more cichlids and let them grow up together.

Remember that the plecos are poop machines! I would go with some synodontis catfish and / or loaches.

Check out the cichlid gallery: http://www.cichlidgallery.com/
and do a search on synodontis.
I have photos of multipunctatus and angelicus in cichlid gallery,
if your looking for something cheaper you might want synodontis eupterus and or loaches.
