I have an apple snail (or some congeneric) with a serious taste for plants. While I tolerated his initial grooming of an alagae-infested Amazon Sword, he shortly thereafter cleared all the live plants out of my 10 gallon p. axelrodi tank.

It's been a few months of the silk plants, and while I find the silks a tolerable alternative, I'd like to try live in that tank again, since it's got about $20 worth of Fluval Stratum substrate as a base and that's precisely what the substrate is for.

Does anyone know any good plants that he won't eat that aren't just floating plants? I'm looking for something fairly low-light and low-tech.
