Tinfoil and plants
 
I have a fifty gallon aquariam that i want to turn into a planted tank. the problem is that my tinfoils love the taste of live plants, so my question is are there any plants that i can put in tank that won't get eaten? are there any fish free plants?

Plants like Anubias may survive, as they are thick-leaf and stem plants. Also Java Fern, I don't recall every reading of any fish that will eat this. Both are in our profiles, click the shaded names.

I might try a sword, such as the common Amazon sword (Echinodorus bleherae), but this is just guessing. My loaches pick little holes in this plant.:-)
