Best plant for fry to hide in?

What would be the best plant I could get to help my guppy fry from being eaten?

Something that they could hide in to avoid the angelfish and others that love to snack on them.

I have a 55 gallon tank with 2x48" t5ho lights and pressurized co2

najas grass is one of my favorites, doesn't take a whole lot to fill up a large space .
Hornwort, java moss, spiky moss, thick cobamba... All kept my platy fry safe from large aggressive tiger barbs...
floating riccia I think is the best
floating watersprite gives my platy and molly fry plenty of hiding spaces.
Ceratopteris Thalictroides (a.k.a Water Sprite). When it's nice and bushy.....most excellent for fry.
Java moss. That stuff becomes dense so fast and it can flot or grow on surfaces. It's super useful when you have small fry that need to hide.
Java Moss and Riccia Fluitans. Although with Angels I don't think you are going to be able to see any surviving fry though.
