Another idea i just thought of is that if you really like tetras, maybe get like 4 different groups of them within your tank so that you have a large variety of shoals.

Mm i really only like the neon tetras. Maybe some blue gouramis cause i like how they kinda slowly swarm to the front when i look in.

I do really like some cichlids but dont the like to "rearrange" their plants and stuff?

My 2 cents: Decide for sure what you want to stock the tank with and then design the tank around it, doing it the other way around could easily lead to regrets later on.

I second angel, depending on the type of fish you may not even want a planted tank, eg a african cichlid tank.

But if you do want a planted tank I would look at some south american cichlids.

Why not, you can add plants to cichlid tank, looks pretty cool with the rock & greenery I think
