Nice tank, glad to see people still like SA chiclids and are willing to try them with plants. I have kept all types of chiclids with java fern, java moss, ananubis, and vals with no problems, I just find a way to protect the vals from being uprooted.
I use these with alot of success.

Dempsey's like to dig so you have better luck using epiphytes vs. rooted plants. If you do decide to use rooted plants, you can minimize damage by putting them in pots.

Also, dempseys get large enough to knock over/break delicate plants.
