I have Jack Dempseys in a tank planted with swords and jungle val.  . 
They weren't interested in the plants as food; the only problem is
keeping the fish from digging up the plants.  The plants are surrounded
with large rocks, so the fish don't bother them much.  Planting away
from the fishes territory helps too.
