I've never had cichlids, but as I understand it, they will dig up almost any plant you put in with them. Maybe some java moss or java fern on a rock or something? Ask over in the planted tank section, they should be able to help.

I think I remember reading somewhere that a very strong root plant that also has thick or tough leaves can do ok in a cichlid tank. Assuming you give it a few weeks or longer to really get some massive roots down before adding the fish. Doing a fishless cycle with those plants in the tank will generally give it enough time to really settle in for the onslaught it will most likely receive.

I may be wrong though and will happily admit it if I am.

Near Valley Fair Mall? I stopped in there while I was there and I guess it was pretty cool. Tanks looked clean and fish looked healthy. It was kinda like a large walk-in closet though, being small and all
