 HI  All,
 
 It  might  sound  a  bit  odd  but  what  is  the  type  of  food  that  can  be  give  for  fishes  in  planted  aquarium?  and  how  can  it  be  cleaned  with  out  disturbing  the  substrate  and  plants  rooting?
 
 I  have  had  this  problem  with  the  cleaning  of  the  left  overs  which  even  the  bottom  dwellers  do  not  touch  and  always  had  to  vacuum  clean  it  up.

 I  guess  there  is  no  specific  food  type  for  planted  aquarium....u  feed  the  same  stuff  but  just  feed  in  limited  quantities  and  not  dump  so  much  that  i  settles  at  the  bottom,  there  is  no  other  way  other  than  vaccuming...you  can  try  not  feeding  your  fish   Smile

 Feed  small  quantities  slowly  so  that  they  consume  most  of  it  before  it  falls  to  the  substrate.  You  can  also  get  some  shrimp  that  will  take  care  of  the  leftovers.

 That  was/is  one  of  the  methods  that  i  use.  
 
 the  point  is  how  can  we  clean  them  up  which  get  settles  out  in  between  the  stems  of  the  plants.

 If  the  food  is  settling  down  at  the  bottom  and  is  not  being  eaten  by  fish,  it  can  only  mean  that  you  are  feeding  excess  food.
 Cut  down  on  food  and  the  problem  will  go  away.

 stop  feeding  so  much.  How  old  is  your  tank.  If  it's  old  then  u  are  over  feeding  if  it's  not,  you  didn't  cycle  it  properly.  try  feeding  live  food.  Bottom  dwellers  like  to  scoop  out  tubifex  or  bloodworms.
