Question Dwarf Gourami safe for planted tank?

Reading through the forum I found people vouching both way so I'm rather confused. I'm considering them for my 22 long but I would hate it if they rip up my purple plants >.<

So YAY or NAY on dwarf gourami and plants

I have a blue gourami and he never has munched on my plants. I did have to rehome a Silver Dollar though for that reason.

I've had a gold guarami in my 20 for almost a year and all she picks on is algae (mild hair algae mostly). I have noticed she really likes swimming through the plants and almost makes a game out of it.

Plants and gouramis are made for each other. They love the algae that grows on them.
