hmmmm the geo's might dig up alot of common plants.
And depending on what kind of pleco's they are, they might eat plants too (especially "delicate" plants).
So I would start with Anubias and java fern - both are often ignored by hungry fish, and both do best when attached to wood or rocks (so the geo's won't dig them up).

Part-time fishguy at Uncle Ned's Fish Factory (saturdays)
Species I am currently keeping/breeding include :
Copadichromis borleyi "redfin"
Labidochromis caeruleus yellow labs
Aulonocara sp. "Lwanda"
Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus "Super Red Ancistris"
Xiphophorus montezumae Montezuma Swordtails
(I'm in the middle of resetting and redesigning my fishroom - so things are kinda quiet)
