Bristlenose plecos usually will not hunt down for plants if there is enough vegetable matter in their diet. Whiptails, clown plecos and a lot of carnivorous plecos will not eat the plants but they will easily uproot them if the plants are not firmly established yet as plecos in general are poor swimmers.
