The best are plants that do well under low light conditions (as most piranha's don't appreciate bright light - it makes them feel exposed and vulnerable).
Suitable plants are Anubias, Java Fern and Java Moss (low light requirements), and to a lesser extent plants such as Vallisneria, Sword Plants and Cryptocorynes (need at least medium light intensity).
Guys, also keep in mind that piranhas like to nibble on plants so I wouldnt get anything that are extremely slow growers or has a long stems as the piranha will surely bite off all the leaves faster than they can regenerate....My swords and Anubias Congensis' were originally 8-10" high when I got them...now they're reduced to just stubby lil 1-2" plants
If you must get some anubias, stick with the smaller ones such as nanas.
