Like most central and South America cichlids they like to dig so you may get some occasional uprooting but they don't eat or destroy plants.

I dont want some that are gonna hide all the time. I dont mind the breeding as its very common.

Equipment will be this-
•Bow Front Glass Aquarium (36 gallons)
•Quiet Flow 30 Power Filter for crystal-clear water (Large filter cartridge included)
•Deluxe Full Fluorescent Hood (Full-spectrum lamp included)
•Submersible Heater (200 watt, accurate +/– 1į F)

If need be and more than likely, ill be adding an ac70 for that added bonus of filtration in all aspecs. I would like to add live plants as well.

So what do you say? If it meets these requirements then im up to listen!

*=MUST MEET THESE STANDARDS PLEASE
I have absolutely no information that would be useful here, but YOU GOT A NEW TANK!!!! Yay!! .

Bleeding heart, lamp eye or Von Rio. Just because they are cool.

Red blue or bloodfin. Bloodfins are cool cause of that bright red fins and they school very tightly. Red blues (or Colombians) are also cool larger fish with good red fins and a blue Mohawk. Add some good color and movement to any tank.

Orange "Von" (i think it was) & the blood fin are my favorites out of those! Due only to their color.

I agree with mogurako's suggestions, adult bleeding hearts are a real site to behold cause they are a larger tetra

This is why I like the red blue, roughly same size as bleeding heart but IMO more colorful

I dont think either of those are too colorful.
I like red minnors too and also von rio. These both have major color
