What kind of fish do you have?
There might be more to it thanjust rambunctiousness and aggression.
My cichlids used to destroy plants in under 24 hours till I started feeding them fresh veg. Now I can keep plants in with them. They love frozen corn and peas... won't eat green beans or carrots. They still uproot a plant or two a couple times a week but before it was just shreds I would find in the tank the next day. If its your fish that are messing up your plants, try feeding fresh (frozen) veg at each feeding. Worked wonders for me.
You can raise ph A LITTLE by adding coral sand to your tank or a bag in your filter, or use limestone for decoration. It will GRADUALY leach into the water and raise both ph and kh ( carbonate hardness) a little.
