I am looking for low light plants for a loach tank (besides anubias)

tank will have occasional c02 injection but would prefer not to have to.

tank will also have a slight current running through it so a plant that will root may be better

I'd also be more willing to pick plants that will not become dinner

-thanks

I have very low light tanks. I have Clown loaches and Kuhli loaches in them.
My plants are Anubias (as you mentioned - they work great), Java Fern, Java Moss, Crypts and Jungle Vals. The Jungle Vals have the hardest time surviving although they grow enough that I can take clippings from them to replant. (I don't know if that's do to fish or light issues). The Crypts and Anubias grow great.
My Kuhli's love my Crypts and spend most of their time in them. I have them heavily planted at the front of the tank so I can actually see my loaches all the time even though they think they are hiding!
