Plants and Silver Dollars appetite?

I was planning on getting 5 Silver Dollars in a planted tank with Wisteria, Java Fern (Regular & Narrow), and Java Moss.

I know they eat plants, but I found out they mainly enjoy soft plants, so I bought the Java Moss for them to snack on when I get them.
I don't mind them eating Moss, but I do not want them to completely devour my Ferns. Will they eat them?

I doubt any fish will eat Java Fern. But Wisteria is likely to be eaten, and in preference to Java Moss I would expect.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
