Need advice for plants with Black Moor

I am planning to setup my 37 gallon tank for my Black Moor soon and have always wanted a planted tank so I think this is a good time to fulfill that dream.

Considering the main fish, Black Moor, here are some concerns:

Are there any plants I should consider in particular? Any I should keep away from?

I should also mention that I am trying to decide what other species to put in there with my single Moor so I'm sure that might affect a few things right?

Unfortunately goldfish eat plants, so there are quite a few to keep away from. I've tried many things with mine and so far the only things they haven't demolished were java fern, java moss, dwarf lilies, and onion plants. You should be able to keep other sturdy plants with them like swords and vallisneria. I'm not sure on hairgrass (dwarf or giant), but I've personally seen them mow down ludwigia, wisteria, all kinds of aponogeton, pennywort, a crypt, and anacharis. They wouldn't touch hornwort either but personally I think it's a rather unattractive plant.

Those are just things that I've tried though; your fish could be totally different. I'm sure there are others here that can chime in on what has and hasn't worked in their planted goldfish tanks.
