Ok, is the tanganyikan tank going to be housing larger cichlids? I'm going to go on the assumption that you're going to go that way and throw out Anubias. You can do some good driftwood work and put in some Anubias and be off and running. Plus the Anubias won't require a lighting upgrade anytime soon. This durable plant can easily withstand a pH of 8 and if you're going to have rough and tumble fish in this aquarium it could be your best bet of having a pleasing scape without killing a lot of plants.

On the tall i would go with bulb plants because they have a tendency to "stretch" in low light environments and end up looking really pretty if and when they reach the surface. Simple sp. could be anything from banana plants (done correctly, not floating around in your tank), lotus sp., and even a madagascar lace does great in low light. Also, with the M. lace, which is beautiful, if the substrate is too rich the plant will constantly turn over leaves because it prefers a substrate close to inert. Its perfect for you.

Just my 2 cents though.
