Many thanks, I'll have a look. Great ideas. (Must confess I'm tempted to get the glue from the lfs
to try as short on legitimate reasons to go.
Could possibly get some replacement Congo tetras but stocking isn't bad at moment. The rather shy bumblebee catfish is getting pretty huge now, wish I got to see more of it!).

Redoing the gravel made a huge mess when I did that. Pea-soup for a day or so even with seachem clarity and next filter clean removed a lot of fine clays. Now pulling up or replanting makes a little mess but not bad (mostly debris not clays).
The substrate is a mixture of gravel, seachem fluorite and a planted pellet with a lot of clay ferts tabs added. Mostly I have stem plants which don't have really big root systems.
