Hi everyone this is my first time with a planted tank and I'm not sure what fish are "plant safe" and wondered if you could make some suggestions. The tank is 90 gal with a 35 gal wet/dry sump, + co2 injected. Currently I have 12 Neons, 2 blue Rams , and 4 Silver Dollars that are outta here cause they are eating up my planted tank.

Plant list is

Aponogeton Crispus
Cryptocoryne wendtii
Anubias barteri var. nana
Vallisneria americana (gigantea)
Limnophila sessiflora
Limnophila aromatica
Rotala Rotundifolia
Vesicularia Dubyana

Thanks for your help!

Nymphaea lotus (zenkeri)

I dare say that almost peaceful community fish are plant safe. Some plecos may chew through large leaves. Some algae eaters may eat mosses. But off the top of my mind, the worst offenders are silver dollars and goldfish (which you wouldnt put in your tank anyway).

Regarding suggestions for what to keep? You really have to go with whatever interests you. Gouramies, livebearers, schools of tetras, danios, possibilities are endless. With your large tank you could even have angelfish.
