Problem with planted tanks is hard to scoop out stuffyou want to sell and you move plants around, creates a mess, stirs up derbis, creates ammonia spike, kills stuff. I've moved all my shrimp tanks to moss only because the plants would obscure how many I actually had to sell, too hard to get them all netted without moving plants all around. If you look online, you'll see most breeders do bare bottom, or even plants in pots instead with bare bottom. Easy to clean the tank after you sell the fish and vacuum the bottom, if you get an infection, easy to drain the tank and refill rather than tear out all the plants, gravel, clean it all, etc.
