what are the best plants for guppy fry to hide in?

Java moss is also known as "guppy grass". That or one of the other mosses are a great choice because they're a dense mass of plant matter that the fry can get into but the big fish can't.

"Guppy grass" is najas guadalupensis. Mosses are great for fry.

Any fine leaf plant will work, float a bunch of anacharis or hornwort.

I found java moss works great. Just be careful to trim it back or it will take over the tank.
