Hello everyone, I'm looking to start a planted tank I have java moss already but am looking for more plant types the requirements are that they grow very fast and make good places for fry to hide

Anacharis, Christmas moss. A whole mess of saggitria planted thick, anything that starts with hygrophilla, swords, (if you trI'm sword enough it gets mad and starts growing bushy instead of long leaves.)

Water sprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides). Just float it and it will grow very fast and provides a great refuge for the fry.

Just a friendly tip, if you go with a root feeder, don't bury the rhizome or the top of the roots depending on which plant. If it can survive as something just floating around, let it float for a weak or so before sticking into the substrate. Anacharis likes to rot when planted if it gets slightly damaged when planting. And lastly, plant melt is real when you buy those tubes of plants. Dont worry, they aren't dying, just adapting to a different life so to speak.
