How Aggressive Do you Vacuum your tank?
Coming from the world of fish only tanks, when I would change my water, I would jam my siphon vacuum tube into the gravel bed to suck up a lot of the crud buried in the gravel.
My guess is that this isn't the best approach for a planted tank, but I assume one needs to atttend to the bottom somewhat? How agressive are you guys with siphoning the bottom? Just skim the tube over the surface? Or do you dig in?
