I currently have two electric yellow cichlids in a 29 gallon tank. From what I've researched, these fish are shy and aren't as aggressive or territorial as other cichlids. My question is does anybody know if a male betta would make a peaceful tankmate?
Male bettas by nature are not peaceful tank mates.
The more pressing issue is your current fish. They will get up to 8 inches in length and will need a much bigger tank than your current set up. Fully grown they would rather eat a betta than live with one.

In my opinion cichlids+betta=bad idea always have you seen the videos on youtube of bettas getting shredded by them.Long story short probably not a good idea.On a side note I love electric yellow cichlids there are my third favorite fish!Do you have pictures of you pretty fish?

I used to have electric yellows and electric blues a while ago. They terrorized my poor guppies and cories. One of the guppies had a chunk of his body torn off and the cories fins were completely shredded. I I put in a Betta there his fins would have ended up confetti. Definitely NOT peaceful.
