That tank looks WAY too small for an African. What tank size is it? Also Africans destroy plants. So you can have any, anyway. I've never heard of plants making your tank dirty (I have a planted tank myself). If you like cheesy decor you can use whatever you want. But just making caves out of rocks look great.

Some say say you can get away with a 30 gallon but I would upgrade to at least a 55

I agree with the 55. There are a few cichlids I think would fit fine. But not a whole lot. I'd reccomend Shellie's instead?
