I was wondering how balas would do in my new planted tank. I just want to know if they will destroy the plants. the plants I am going to have are Brazilian penny-wort, onion plant, elodea (anacharis), giant hygrophila, valisneria, amazon sword, cryptocoryne, and dwarf hair-grass. my main concern is the Giant hygro. and despite being new here I am not new to the hobby!

welcome to fishlore!!
they shouldnt bother them
but they need a huge surface/middle area for swim space so keep that in mind with the taller plants

Thank you!
yeah I know, I am planning on planting mainly the back and sides leaving plenty of room in the middle for them to swim.

Welcome to fishlore.
I know this has nothing to do with the plant question, but would you mind my asking how many you have, and which tank they are in?
