I would go ahead and vacum it up. It's not that hard anyway. You should try to vacum out as much as you can at each water change, and save heavy cleanings for every other month or so. I just pulled up a 4 inch high mat of glosso yesterday and you should have seen the mulm under there. Not that I'm lazy, but with 4.8 wpg and ei dosing, it grows that much in about a month. Just be carefull not to get it too much into the water column.
