No, they don't bother plants at all. They do lay a lot of eggs, but after a few weeks that stops / slows down.
I stock about 1 to 1.5 per 10 gallons of tank. If they eat all the algae you will want to feed them some wafers, not because they eat plants afterwards, but because they won't stay as healthy.
