planted cichlid tank....

I am in the process of getting my 160 gallon cichlid tank up and running, in my other tanks i have val's and java ferns that the fish leave alone. Just curious of some other hardier plants that i could use in my tank.
thanks Tim

I have Caribsea black Tahitian moon sand and Fluval Stratum substrait

Some anubias work but you never know cause one cichlid you own might decide he likes the taste. Java ferns and amazon swords work but its tough due to the demand for a high ph. Are you keeping new world or African?
