RE: Bristlenose & Clown Plecs (answer)

Here is a list of some fish that have been reported to eat plants.  The
clown pleco has been reported on the list as rasping swords to death.  Also
a friend at a local fish store mentioned that a clown pleco had damaged
several sword plants.  Maybe the bristlenoses are OK and the clown is the
only problem.
