Moved to planted.

You could try java fern and anacharis. The anacharis is easy to grow and will provide a bunch of cover. Hormwort would also work well and you can float it.

Najas species will grow like crazy as well, and if you keep replanting the clippings you can grow it pretty dense.. Probably the easiest plant I've found to grow.

Hornwort is what I let my 30 or so platy, molly, and swordtail babies hide in. Don't bother planting it though, just let it float. It makes it really hard for the mommas and the poppas to get the young.
