Water change with delicate stem plants?
I recently started E.I. dosing ferts, which requires a 50% water change once a week. The tank is still quite new, it has been up and running for about a month. I've been adding more plants, but now I think I may run into a problem. I have some bacopa that I added to the tank last week. The substrate I used is Samurai Soil, and it is a complete pain in the ass to get stem plants to stay in the substrate and not float up to the top. If I am doing a 50% water change, I'm almost certain that as soon as the water gets low enough for the bacopa to not be fully suspended, it will be uprooted. This is probably a stupid question, but is there anything I can do differently about the water change? Or is my only option to just get some lead weights to hold the plants down?
Thanks in advance.
