Thank you Hilde, that's great suggestion and I appreciate you taking the time to mention this.
Severums, (Heros) are true omnivores after having kept them for about 4 years now, I would say they have a pretty equal affinity for plants and meat, but... like many African Cichlids e.g. N. Brichardi, Zebras Pseudotropheus sp., always dig. This particular species of South American Cichlids, Severums always like to chew up plants and spit them out. Not just some, but everyone I've owned to date, I currently have 12. So, I know and have decided that if I use plants they will be artificial due to my previous frustrations and attempts to bounce ideas off of Cichlid people and my LFS. African cichlids are actually much easier to have live plant with and I have done this before. I feel like I might have more luck with live plants in my Oscar tank, LOL.
I'd probably see if I could persuade PlantedRich to chime in as he has Cichlids (Africans albeit) and plants in at least one of his tanks.
As mentioned though, I do really appreciate what would otherwise seem to be the obvious place to post.
