100% agreed thats what i'd do. And by whole gaggle. A pile of them and different species too. Would look really nice.

You could do Tetra's and some Oto's (what was your water like again?)
Anything that's calmer and not aggressive and smaller.

I believe Discus would be great in a planted tank. Most people keep discus in water temps of 82 to 84 degrees F . This may limit the species of fish and plants a little.
Were it me,I might get the plants well established before introducing Discus. This could give you time to save for the purchase of a group of fish.

I absolutely think they;ll love plants, I'd get stuff like Amazon Swords and different Vallisnaria and prop various Cryoto's for the front...

Uhm and on a side note...wanna hunt TN and get some deer of my property, I'd appreciate that cause otherwise the ONLY planted space here will be my tanks in the spring...

You live in TN? ... there are some beautiful water plants in TN... mostly silted over and otherwise yucked up with mud but if they were cleaned off they'd look pretty nice. As you can see I like to go digging up plants and stuff instead of fishing or hunting

Based on my own personal experience, I can agree with this statement 100%.
