How do you clean a plante tank

I asked this in another board but figured if get answers here sorry

So the 10 Gallon is up and running. I treated the water went out and bought a new filter as the old one needed a new Bio filter God knows what was in it. ( I got this tank 2nd hand)So we got a whisper filter which let me tell you is pretty cool. So I got it all set up with a heater and had two therm. one came with it (the stick on kind) and we got the one that sticks to the tank) I went and bought different plants then the sword I have in my 5 gallon. tthis is my question, they are plants that you stick in the Gravel so when I go and do a water change and clean the gravel with the vaccum do Ijust replant what comes up? or should they notcome up. My mom was quit impressed with my knowing so much more then i did with the 5 gallon :P and this 10 gallon is in my room ^^

Once your plants take root they shouldn't come up very easily but until then it is possible they will & you'll have to replant. I stick the vacuum down into the gravel in the areas with no plants & just hover it over the areas, as close to the gravel as I can, there are plants. This will get most of the gunk.
