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 know you posted this a little while ago,but i hadn't seen it.
i have tall Vallis in my tank with two koi angels,and i have not seen them
do anything like that ,the only time they go near the Vallis
it to pick little paticals off the leaves,they have never done any
damage.

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.
