Since I set up my 39gal tank last fall I have slowly been moving into the world of planted tanks by having both planted and plastic plants. Eventually I would like to move towards having a fully planted tank, which would include a grass like plant completely (or mostly) covering the substrate.
Now here is the question. Currently during my PWC
I use a siphon to remove the debris from the gravel, which I believe is pretty standard. But when you have this type of plant growth do you just forgo cleaning the gravel all together or is there another technique I am unaware of?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
