So, I'm sitting here wondering what to do now. I just tried to syphon the gravel in my aquarium for the first time, and I realize that I probably need to remove the rocks and plants that I have set up.
I wish I didn't have to syphon. Is there any way that I can get around syphoning? Tons of live plants? Two filters?
Secondly, in case there is no getting around it, how can I simplify my aquarium setup so that it won't take me forever to remove all the plants and rocks so I can syphon and then have to put everything back?
Thirdly, some of my plants are turning brown and debri is getting everywhere from them. Should I remove them or try to save them?
