Tankmates for my kribensis: African river tank

Hello, I have a 55 gallon tank with only a pair of kribensis and some oddball guppies and white clouds in it that I intend to find new homes. What can I keep with my kribensis? I was thinking a school of congo tetras, some kind of catfish, and then another type of cichlid with lots of color. I'd like all the fish to be from the same African rivers, etc, a mismatched tank really gets on my nerves. I'm not a breeder or anything, so I don't care if the fish mate because I likely wouldn't be able to find them all homes anyway and then I'd feel bad.

A large school of congo tetras makes a nice African riverine tank. You will almost surely have a lot of fry with a mated pair of kribs though. They breed like crazy.
