Actually, I am looking for cichlids specifically-Yes, I know there are many kinds for both hard and soft water. And yes I know that is vague because as I stated, my ram and angel both seem fin in my very hard water despite their general preference for soft. However, I am looking at getting more aggressive species, such as African (probably Lake Tanganyika Species as previously stated)
2wheelsx2 is correct, I have been concerned for the aggression they tend to have on plants and before I started out wanted to see if others had had success, what species of both plants and cichlids they have getting along. Right now the tank is empty, so I'm really just doing some research here on other peoples success and struggles.
