What Plants?

Ok, I have two lovely Red Severum in my tank. And as expected, they are tearing apart a number of plants.
They have gone after the Java ferns and pretty much destroyed a nice group of them. They are going after another plant I forget it's name as well. They have left the sword plants with thicker leaves alone.
They also go after the moss, and it ends up all over the place. Well, several fish go after it.

So, what plants are going to do well in this situation? Ones that can put up with stray moss as well.

I have LED lighting, canister filter, rocks and drift wood.

Do you have any Anubias? They're pretty tough.

Yes, I have one and they leave it alone. Maybe two, as I got a package deal a year ago and I forget several of the plants names.

You might try more, then? There are MANY different species on the market these days. Lots of different leaf sizes and textures, even colors.

There are even since varieties of Java Fern available. Lace, Long Leaf...

Severum are infamous plant eaters, so I would avoid anything with soft leaves. Even Amazon Swords might get some attention.
