Plain background it is haha, I was going to go for a 3d background while I was setting the tank up but I decided not too as I thought that would be a bit out of my league haha. I'll have to order some from there! Sounds great and very true also in store plants have always been more than a bit infested with "a few snails" which has ended up being dozens of bladder snails everywhere! I was only expecting a few but I once ended up with a whole colony filled with breeding snails, good job they sort algae and I weirdly find them cute otherwise I'd be ordering assasin snails And I havent actually I'll check that out aswell, I love amazon swords they're brilliant.I'd do a plain black background really makes cichlids pop. If you want plants from online ther are some really good stores out there. I've been really happy with Scaped Nature and Pro Shrimp in particular while I've been ordering online. Infact I'd choose to go online rather than instore as stores dont really take great care (unless dedicated aquascaping stores) and you get better choice online. Have you seen the ADA Amano tank they did recently with just swords looked really good.
Frogbit would be a good choice robust plant that the cichlids wont destry lol.
Great! Thank you again @Wills if it wasn't for you then I'd be lost in the cichlid keeping world (Probabaly would of ended up with a disaster of a tank lol) I'll grab some frogbit and swords online and my sevs are awful with anubias especially for some reason and I thought anubias was meant to be nasty tasting to fish hahaha
