OFL, how often do you remove dead plant matter? I've noticed that Diana W. doesn't mention water changes in a newly set up tank. For that matter, I've never heard any mention from anyone about proper care for a newly set up NPT. Just lots of raves about how few water changes need to be done when it's established. I suspect that a lot of my current problems are stemming from how few water changes I've done.
Could you explain what water changes do for the tank? All Diana mentions in her book is the removal of excess nutrients in the water column. How does that affect fish health (if at all)
