Which plants will my fish not eat?

I was asked this question twice this morning – not sure why but felt it promoted a quick blog post.

If your fish eat plants, you are massively restricted with regards to the plants that you will ever grow and keep in your tank. So you have 2 choices:

  1. move the fish on to someone who wants your fish
  2. only keep 2 species of plants

I know which choice I would have! But if yours is the second option Anubias and Microsoriums are the only species of plants I know that tend to be avoided. These plants either taste horrible or are simply too tough to digest. Who knows which one!

You can find all the anubias here and the microsoriums here.
