    Crayfish are aquatic bulldozers. You could get dwarf crayfish maybe. Mine don't dig in the sand, but I'm not sure about the live plant part.

    One crayfish I had even decided to munch down on some plastic plants.

    My crayfish has only slid my plants over if he cant move around them well. He has so far only moved them a little close together so he can try to catch one of the guppies in the tank. (Which is what they are there

    I've seen my crayfish nibbling on my sword plant. I've also even seen him dig up a root and take a nibble! And yes, they definately like to dig around the roots! I find that if I give him lots of hiding places he'll stay away from the plant though. I think he mainly digs at the roots in attempts to make a hiding place! lol Good luck!

    Mine dug up my plants so I put them in another tank. They dig the roots up and nibble on them.

    I think moss species would be OK, or even plants with driftwood...
