What!

I am starting a large tank, with soft, acid water and various plants, eg: Java Fern, Anubias. What should I put in there, fishwise, discluding Discus? First one to give me a real help gets 20 kudos!!!!

Medium Tetras, Angel fish, Siamese Algae Eaters, Corydorus Catfish. All those fish would like the conditions you describe, would not damage plants, or be aggro to one another. I'm sure there are many more that would work also, but this is a decent starting point.

Give the kudos to somebody else, I have too many as it is!

No, I'm not thinking about marine. I was just curious on what people thought about it!

I would definately consider angelfish! Discus and angels are both cichlids and really compliment each other! I was assuming you were planning on discus already? In addition three clown loaches would spice the tank up as far as action. I would also throw in 3 or 4 pearl gouramis and a common pleco. This tank would be really relaxing with the slow moving, graceful fish with the clown loaches in for comic relief! I am assuming a 75 gallon or so tank. Good luck with it!
