Several of the larger cichlids work well with some advance planning. At times, several of us have had discussions of these.
I find the larger fish do have some special points to consider but lots of that can be worked around. One point that stops some is the potential for digging so choosing the correct fish and setting the tank with planning for spots to dig and spots for planted can help a lot.
On fish choice, I do not go with very many of the SA/CA cichlids as they do tend to be more trouble than I like but I find several of the African cichlids work well for me. When choosing the larger, I go with those who are from open water and less with those in the mbuna group. Mbuna, being rock fish, will naturally be found near and around the bottom and rocks. The Protomelas group are large bright colored and open water fish who tend to only go to the bottom rarely and when breeding.
I set my tanks with open spots when I want them to breed and they go there while I keep my plants in other areas and up off the floor. If planning to use mbuna, who will dig under and around the rocks, look at putting the plants up on top of the rocks.
This is my 125 with the largest being a nine inch male Protomela insignus and his females and an assortment of the more peaceful mbuna. I have used Labidocromis of several types, Yellow tail acei, bristlenose and algea eaters.
