I have 20 gal ready to go.

Just some questions - what type of fish and plants do well in the Phx water? Seems on hard side (understatement).

What's the best (assortment, quality) LFS east of the 51 and north of the 10?

Thanks Arizonians!
Cichlids are best suited to metro-Phoenix water supply. If you have an acidic substrate like Amazonia, you can grow almost any plant but the key is pressurized CO2.
