In planted tank with african cichlids you must consider using hard water hardy plants that doesn't / only need low co2. Anubias works great here. I've kept tanganyikans like frontosa, leleupi, julies, and some other neolamps in my anubias dense planted tank. They works great with pile of stones in both back corners for hiding places when aggression happens.

But when my fronts grew big they tear every plant though. I don''t know with calvus / compressiceps though, i think it should be fine.

For the non co2 bushy low plant i think Sagittaria subulata works fine. For the tall one maybe some amazon swords.
