Ammonia Spikes

hi all! I just had a quick question about how to avoid or decrease ammonia spikes. I want to rescape my tank and move plants around, but I have live fauna and I am afraid they might die if I do a rescape and cause an ammonia spike. Any tips and tricks will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Hello n...

As long as you don't have too many fish in this tank, I don't think you have anything to worry about. It would be helpful to do a larger than normal water change prior to rescaping this tank. That way, you know the water chemistry is good prior to moving plants and disturbing the substrate.
