I can't even find my substrate to vac it ;) My tanks are heavily stocked and heavily planted. I wouldn't worry about any areas that are planted well as far as gravel vacs. Left over food is...

I have heard that MTS shells are too hard for some loaches. Having said that, my clowns destroyed my pond snail population. I now pull them from other tanks to feed the clowns.

As mentioned,...

Mine eat whatever comes their way. It seems that they might not see as well. Once they figured out which way the food was coming, they are always in position to get it. Might just take some time....

I had a Dwarf who was so awful he had to move to a bachelor pad. They do not seem to like anyone that comes into the top half of the tank. The fish that stayed near the bottom he didn't bother,...

They do get rather long, but they are a pretty skinny fish. I thought they were cool, till I got them home. They cruise the tank at night, and if you have moonlights, you will see them. Otherwise...

As far as I know, veggies and plant matter work exactly the opposite. Peas are recommended to relieve it, so I am not getting how plants could cause it. I keep my golds with a ton of anacharis, which...

I think your fishload is OK, if you are able to keep nitrates at a good level with water changes (or lots of plants). Having said that, Tiger barbs can get kind of large and there may not be a good...

I do not have a lot of experience with BN and planted tanks (new to plants) but I can tell you they are terrific algae eaters, especially when young. So far mine is not bothering my plants, but they...
