Plants Goldfish Won't Eat

I know Goldfish eat most plants. Are there any easy to care for plants that Goldfish won't eat?

Plastic. Seriously though, and this is just a guess, possibly Java Fern, and or Anubias.

Thanks, WaterPond. I'll have to select some hardy plants as my goldfish are outside and I can't do much to maintain the plants.

It depends on what kind of goldfish you have .... single tails like comets will eat just about anything .... OTOH, my fancies don't appear to be eating any live plants I've tried .... they like their veggies cooked!

This is the "safe" plant list from goldfish paradise forums:

Anarchis is on the list! I thought that was the number one goldfish snack plant.

I thought so too .... and some others had also comment on that in the attached posts on that thread.

But I've also read in some goldfish books that Anachis is good with golds. I think it grows so fast that golds have a hard time eating it all .... but that would depends on the size & number of fish you have & how hungry they are!
