Hi there I have got 6 cichlids in my tank
2x Keyhole cichlids
2x Kribenis
2x T-bar cichlids
At the moment I have a 180litre tank that has only got fake plant and oraments and I want to move onto live plants and a piece of driftwood I read somewhere that cichlids are not compatible with live plants but I seen hundreds of tanks with live plants and cichlids in them, so will I be okay to put live plants in with my selection of fish??

Keyholes and kribs are fine with any plants. T bars can dig but are worth trying with plants.
