New world + planted tank

I have never owned a cichlid so I could really use some input. I have a 4og planted tank set-up and am curious about your opinions as to what you would stock a tank like mine with if it was yours.
ph 6.8
kh 6
temp 79
Look forward to hearing your ideas

Definitely Angels and Rams. They are beautiful in a planted tank. Round it out with a school of Tetras and a few bottom dweelers. That would be how I would do it anyways.

Got to have the Apisto's then with the Rams,Apisto,Angels your set for a South American bio tank add a few tettra's either black skirts or ruby reds. Then your set up will be a bio tank with a few plants and sand substuter and pop your done.

But can forget the Apisto's I have for sell to. LOL just had to throw that out there. LOL Sorry
