angelfish + plants

just wondering if anyone with a planted tank has observed any particular behaviours in your angelfish toward the plants? like, chewing, uprooting, etc?

i just recently added the first live plants ever to my tank, and my angels seem to enjoy "chewing" or "tearing" them.

just wondering what anyone else's observations have been. THanks!

I have a mix of plastic, silk and live (anubias) in my tank. The angels like to pick at the algae on the leaves but haven't done any damage to them.
