I have various swords in my tanks, and the only things that eat them are pesky snails. My BN clean them and my ferns etc of algae, but they don't damage the leaves. Possibly people are mistaking this behavior for eating the plants themselves? Or perhaps they are blaming plecos when snails are the culprits? Or perhaps they don't feed their poor plecos and they get so desperate that they DO eat the plants?
