No they are not. If you are thinking of keeping them, find your self an expert.
Malawis for example, shoal together, but only refrain from attacking each other because they are distracted by the movement of their fellows. They need a four foot ( one and a half metre) tank at least or they will kill each other.
I haven't even mentioned S. American cichlids, which are different and equally tricky.
Do the fish and yourself a favour and leave them alone.
If you have to ask such a silly question you don't know what you are doing.
For the most part, you do not want to keep cichlids in a peaceful tank. But, a few SA species, such as Rams, can be kept in a semi-aggressive or even sometimes a community tank. I don't recommend keeping most cichlids unless you know what you are doing.

For me I pick Neon Tetra, the small fish that swims in group that's found in the Amazon Jungle what it takes to be favored fish ever. With its blue and red color its makes it as hobbyists well liked fish. Plus neons are relatively very cheap...
