Default Help with live plants

Hi every one,could any one tell me the best live plants if any i could get,that my ballon mollys wont destroy. In my 30 gallon tank i have mollys, swords,platys, and guppies. i think its the mollys thats killing the plants, so i now have plastic ones in there. I do like the realy ones better and they give more cover for the fry. So if any one nos which plant would be best please tell me, tanks Tracy

I don't know what kind of lighting you have on the tank. The wattage of your lighting will dictate many of the plants that will live in your tank. Read this for starters.http://www.tropicalfishandaquariums....ants/index.asp
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

what plants are you having issues with?
