Well, the first one I looked up was the venustus. At adult sizes of 8" - 10", sites suggest a minimum 125 tank (which I have, but I'm not turning it into a cichlid tank). I have a 90g I'm trying to decide what to do with, but the fish would be too big for that. Too bad because the adults are gorgeous. What are you going to do with these cichlids as they grow? Do you have bigger tanks to move them too (I should ask, are you going to build larger tanks - lol) I would think you're going to have a war zone on your hands as all your fish mature...

Ill put them in a bathtub
Kidding..
I'm getting a 350g tank soonish.. But u know they don't grow too fast if u dont overfeed them.. so your 90 gallons is okay for a few years
