Want to try something new....
 
I have a empty 80 gallon aquarium I would like to stock as a community tank (I already have a few Cichlid tanks)
I would like to have this tank planted as well . My PH is about 7.8 and my water is a little harder. I can get many tank bred species so the water parameters would be a little more flexible.

Does anyone have any suggestions on fish or plants for this tank?
If it was your tank what would you add?

Thanks Guys

You should get a small turtle that will coexist with your fish, if possible.

How about barbs or tetra? For planted plants, try glosso. For floating plants, try frogbits

Hi I recommend Black ruby barbs ! :D they are active lovely color and are not as aggressive as other barbs! I have seen one one time nip at the side of one of my zebra danio but its just when they sleep at the bottom and a danio comes and disturbs it hehe aside from that easy care very fast swimmer and will fight with other male so more males then females makes a more colorful barb hehe :)
and here is a video of them fighting its prety nice! mine fight all the time!
