Hi, i would get stones African cichlids need a lot of hiding places. Have a look at the photos in the picture section, it might give you ideas. Can't comment on the equipment part as i don't know the brands you are buying. Which specific fish are you putting in?

Oceane cichlid and cats mostly

I was originally going to Cichlids but now I'm not so sure...I wanted a planted tank but African Cichlids apparently aren't so good for that.

Jsm, go with discus and other South American fish, I say.
Ditch the Africans off your list.
