orangespot would be more apt to leave the plants alone as they dig less.
 For minnows I would recommend southern redbellied dace as they look
absolutely stunning in a planted tank.  Way much better than fatheads.
There are may other very colorful minnows, but I have to say I am
partial to this dace because of its beauty and ease of maintenance.
