Thank you, Michel.
If you look at the YouTube video on my DogFish's 40 journal, the Cherry Barbs are eating a sheet of Seaweed. I will see them pick at algae on plants. The Cherry barbs don't destroy my Crypts, Java Fern or Taiwan Moss.

Other types of Barbs are destructive on plants I've read. I understand Tiger Barbs are pretty rough on plants. Cherry barbs are the only kind I keep.
