Plants for 10gal/Cory tank?

I have a 10gal with 3 corys, I'm moving in about a month so I'll get a bigger tank and at least 3 more corys then, meanwhile, I want to buy some real plants for this tank, what do you guys recommend? Do corys enjoy/like any plants in particular?
This is my first time owning corys.

Thanks!

Hi. My Corys are I a heavily planted tank. They need access to the gravel or sand so the planting must leave exposed areas. I wouldn't try to carpet a tank when keeping Corys. They like the seclusion and shade provided by plants allowing them the choice as to when they want to come out. Mine are out on and off during the day but all are out at feeding time. Corys don't feed off the plants and I don't know of any preferences, just pick plants with growth that are in proportion to your tank.

I keep three cories in a 20 G and they sometimes lies on broad leaf plants like the Anubias on my driftwood.
