Pearlweed is really thick and would allow fry to hide really well. A riccia mat on the substrate would work well also. If oyu have enough lighting then Micro swords would work well but they require a ton of light. Dwarf hairgrass, Hemianthus Callitrichoides, and Pellia are others that owuld work well but also require higer light.

Determine which plants fit your lighting and go from there.

That link will help you see what the light requirements are for the plants you want to choose.
