I'm looking for some bottom/middle fish preferably dwarf cichilids that are:
  • no bigger then 4"
  • can be in a community tank
  • fine in a planted tank
  • easy to breed
  • preferably great parents [if possible]

I'm looking to keep two pairs/groups in my 75g. I'm thinking two different species depending on the personalities

Try Golden Dwarfs (Nanacara) or Lataecara Dorsiger or Curviceps. All are great for exhibiting parental care!! Stay < 4" and love the planted tanks.
I have Nanacara Anomela growing up and I have never witnessed such wonderful care by the Mother from any fish - even my Betta boys don't do as good a job! The Nanacara are almost 3 weeks old and Mom still watches over them like a Hawk!
The Dorsiger and Curviceps do the same.
