Some very easy plants to keep is Water Sprite. You can just leave it float. It will help take a lot of excess nutrients out of your tank and provide some cover for the fry. It's also generally very hardy, and should do ok with any lighting as long as you let it float. Hope that helps!

Thank you soo much! I'm going to have more fry in about a week so I think they will really enjoy it. Do you have any suggestion where to get it?

I use java moss. You can actually make java moss do many things. I have one tank that I use fishing line tied to two stationary objects to make a java moss wall midwater. I also use duckweed, but you have to keep it under control. I freeze the excess and feed it to my goldfish and crayfish.
