someones tearing my plants apart

Hello. I recently put my 10 gallon and 17 gallon into a 45 gallon. I have 2 Platies, 2 corys, 3 danios, 1 guppy, and a pleco. My plants consist of jungle val, four leaf clover, dwarf hair grass, banana plant, java fern, java moss, wisteria, water sprite and large amazon sword.

I put them in last night. My tank was cycled. And the jungle val is torn apart and the wisteria is uprooted. Not sure who to blame.

I know I need more of the certain fish. I was trying to wait til a bigger tank.

Thank you

Pleco and corys most likely. Pleco just roots around and corys like to dig

+1...plecos have been known to eat some plants (usually broader leaves like Amazon Swords but guess he settled on your val) and sometimes uproot them.
