looking for low light plants that silver dollars won't eat

I'm looking into putting some live plants in my tank... it's filled with 2x oscars, 6x silver dollars, 2x pictus catfishes, 1x red blood parrot in 150 gallon tank.

In the past I've used java fern but they grew SO slow or not at all. I want something that requires little to no light that will propagate quickly. Will java moss suffice? If not, something that would outpace the eating speeds of my silver dollars will work too!

java moss, once established can grow very quickly. It might take over ur tank if your not careful.

i had a trio of silver dollars but had to re home them when my 150g broke they will eat EVERYTHING green from java moss to java fern aparently if there kept well fed with greens they will leave the plants be but i found they were quite happy to anihalate both i would personally look for some good qaulity synthetic plants

You could try hornwort. I've never heard of anything eating hornwort before, and it grows like crazy.

Onion plants grow tall and do well in low light. I have yet to see a fish that finds them tasty.
