I have a 600 litre aquarium that has some tank busters in, but none are destructive. (bgk and a few polypterus sp's that dont do anything to plants)
The only destructive thing in there id puntius filamentosus (5+fry) i also have a green sev but its very well behhaved towards plants.
The only things that i have tried that stand up to the punishment are crypts and an unidentified stam plant.
Ive tried anubius and moss but they get destroyed.
Any other ideas on what would work?
It has 4 58w t8's and everything else is standard and low tech.
thanks in advance for any replies :D

Crinums, large echinodorus and java ferns.

You might have more success with bigger types of Anubias too and letting them and the moss get established and rooted onto the decor before putting them in the tank.
