I have a semi planted tank with Dwarf hairgrass, microsword, anubias and java ferns.

How do I clean/vaccuum substrate without distrubing everything and having to replant?

People with huge planted tanks....do they ever clean substrate? If not do they deal with water fouling consequences?

What do most folks do who have a lot of plants on the bottom?

On a side note - I have seen several threads about "no substitution for tank scrubbing" when it comes to algae. However, I have an algae eater, a rainbow shark, a few shrimp and some snails, and that crew keeps my tank cleaner than I ever could trying to scrub it. Just saying :)
