I would think this tank will be an exception to some of the rules about keeping cichlid sub species together such as cyps and julies. Anybody have an opinion.

Als49, no I don't think I'll have any plant in it. Too much maintenance and the fish will rip them apart anyway.

Have you realized that there are some plants that are almost maintenance free and not disturbed by herbivore fish?

I use them in my goldfish planted tank and the plants keep growing.
