These fish you suggested are all ciclids, someone told me that they will re-arange my plants because they like to build a little "home" or place to hide. So they can pull my plants out of the gravel or break off stems. I know Rams are good though, and im deffinately adding them but, are these other fish ok?
Discus are great, I wish I could have some... but they require a higher water temperature than 90% of the fish out there so, I cannot keep them in a tank with a wide variety of fish, unless you know of a few that work well with it.
I never heard of Angels nipping at plants, some people said they will nip fins occasionally (but stay pretty peacfull) Than others say that they are really aggressive and will eat fish. But thats the first I heard of them eating plants or nipping the plants. My local pet shop suggested Angels as a great "planted tank" fish. Of course, its a local pet shop!!! haha Who do you believe right? hahahah I will take that into concideration when getting an angel. But I would like to have a few larger type fish since its a 60 gallon tank. And not just tiny guppies or stuff. Although I wouldnt mind them. Just want something a little more substantial also... Anyways, I cannot add fish yet anyways, just trying to get idea's for when I do. Ahhhh what to do... lol
