Question Tiger barbs and plants

Tiger barbs do fine with plants right? I've always been under the impression they did good together. My cousin said people he knows said they eat them pretty quickly. Just curious if i need to reconsider my tank or not. Thanks.

I've never had a problem with my tiger barbs eating any of my plants, I think you'll be fine.

Hornworts can "prickle" them so this one is fine. Water milfoil may be another plant that can stand a chance. Others will include anubias, Java ferns and Java moss.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
