Interesting info good to know. Thanks. I am leaning towards julies or yellow labs for my soon to be set up planted African cichlid tank.
Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, I think vallisneria will do OK in high hardness water as well. Vals are pretty easy to take care of (mine are sending runners and multiplying like nuts) and would give you some tall plants to contrast with the smaller plants already mentioned.

Yes Vals are the plants I intend to use. I like their grass look and find them hardy under good conditions not to mention not a plant that lends itself to being easily shredded by fish.
I use American vals in my unheated native fish tank to but the pH in that tank is around 7.o.
thanks.
