L200 is actually applied to 2 different sp. of fish, Baryancistrus demantoides and Hemiancistrus subviridis. I keep the Bary and a L128 (hemiancistrus sp(L128)) and neither of them have ever touched any of my live plants. I would be surprised if Java fern was eaten by either of these sp. (or any loricariidae for that matter) as it is midly toxic to them i think

There is speculation that L128 the northern form of hemiancistrus subviridis but this has not been confirmed yet.

interesting, i haven't heard of fish actually dying through consumption.

I will add, that i keep Panaque, Baryancistrus, Scobinancistrus, Hemiancistrus, Lasiancistrus, Ancistrus, Parotocinclus and Chaetostoma all in tanks containing anubias and java fern and no plant has ever been eaten
