Many cichlids can do well in planted community tanks - if you are not care if they dig a little or tear a couple things up. Many won't ruin the tank, but they may modify it a bit!

You could try to keep the Green for awhile with the Longears and shiners. If he is just a baby now he'd be ok for now, and you can always remove him if he causes a problem. My understanding is that...

There are two types of Emperor Tetras - one gets bigger.
I found that any of the deep bodied tetras, like Serpae, are only nippy to other fish if they don't have enough of their own kind. They...

I would stop using the pH down also, I think stability in pH is more important than being in the "ideal" range for your fish.
