From Arizona Aquatic Gardens on Redline Sharks:

This species may nibble on some plants that are soft-leaved, but is not interested in intimidating plants like anubias, swords, or grasses.

Maybe dwarf hairgrass is soft enough for them to eat. I'm sure you would be able to spot melting. Of course, that's not to say that both nibbling and melting are not going on. You typically need at least 2 wpg (other factors are involved) to grow those ground covers.

I have no idea what a Ramezeri is, but your other fish wouldn't eat plants.
