I believe my malawai eye biter is ripping my plants. Is this kind of behavior normal, or do I just have an angry fish??

its probably normal. There are many fish who eat plants. Maybe if you make sure your feeding them enough [not too much though!] and be sure to put more vegation in thier diet they won't pick at your plants too much.

African cichlids are notorious plant up-rooters. It's perfectly normal.
