Good plants for fry to hide in?

I've seen some breeders floating what looks like a tangles ball of yarn for the fry to hide in... it's not so much for aesthetics though.... quite ugly.

The floating can be anything such as those fake baby matted plants and just let them float instead of planting them or i bought this very long 30" planted plant that because of the longness of it, it floats and it has a planted part as well.
I had my 10 gallon so planted that barely any of the light got through which made it much harder to see the fish so i just decided to use seperate tanks but whatever makes you happy.

I "planted" it, then sprinkled some gravel over the top to hold it down.

Java Moss can grow nicely in the mandatory lighting that most aquairum kits give you, so it dieing on you wont be a problem.
It grows fast, but not so fast it over runs your tank, adds shade, and best of all, is a wonderful hiding place for fry. The fry can dig themselves all the way inside the mass of moss, but the adults cant. It also adds I nice look to your tank.
Hope I helped,
