Anubias originally comes from Africa, and is often used in tanks with an African theme - it is strong and doesn't need a lot of light to survive.
Vallisneria would also be a good choice, as I've seen it prosper in numberous Afr. cichlid tanks.
And Java Fern probbaly does fine as well - hardy and does well under low light conditions.

All the afformentioned plants may work but it depends strictly on your fish.On all my friends that have african cichlids here in greece (and they are many....) the plants are "temporarely" in their tanks.......

I suggest to give it a try!


p.s. What kind of cichlids you have?
