Question regarding fish selection
 
I have a 55 gallon ADA tank. (I have a ADA 90P tank that I used for a full on planted tank.) I have decided to take a break from the planted tank world, and make a more easy to maintain tank. I'm going to put a nice white sand on the bottom along with a nice rockscape. I'm looking for some nice suggestions of fish to put in the tank. I know when I had a planted tank I was sort of limited on what fish to keep. Some ate the plants, some would eat the cardinal tetras, etc....

I am going to be starting over, so I'm open to some suggestions. I know discus are popular, but I've always read they are sort of hard to keep. I'm not a rookie by any means, but I'd rather not have to deal with any picky fish! Also I have an open top set up (ADA) so I don't want any fish who are known jumpers. (I understand that all fish "can" jump...)

Let me know what you think as far as stocking goes.

Thanks!
