My angelfish like laying eggs on the leaves of large-leafed plants like amazon sword. Other than that I don't think that they did anything to affect the plants.

Hi Jeff,

I have a mated pair of marble veils in my 45. They do fine with all my plants, soft and hard leaf. I have Rotala, Ludwigia, and Bocopa in the tank along with various Crypts and Java Ferns. They occasionally "pick" a leaves but I don't find any damage. They did spawn on a Crypt leaf and on an Aponogetum leaf.

I had angels in the past.... all they did was eat my duck weed... which was fine with me. I had no problems with these critters chewing up any palnts

Later!

Most of the time my angels are well behaved and show no interest in the plants except as places to explore or hide. One angel battered a Crypt leaf that was in her way but left the rest of them alone. When I had a mated pair they would occasionally be too vigorous when cleaning their chosen leaf and cause some damage.
