plant questions

Hi, I have a 120g with a 12 in. clown knife, breeding pair of jaguar cichlids around 8 in. each, jack dempsey(about 5 in.), a jewled cichlid (about 4 in.), and a 9 in butterfly pleco. What are the odds that i could ever have live plants? And if i wanted the plants, what would i have to get rid of?

The mbuna are the plant eating cichlids, yours will try to dig up your plants but not eat them.
Holey rock pieces can hold down amazon swords and giant vallisneria long enough to get their root systems going. Once you have a patch of vals with good roots, they should be sturdy enough for all but the most determined cichlid.
For these larger plants you will need deeper gravel.
When I had aquariums, there were several anchoring products available, non of which worked very well.
