    Can you use a gravel vacuum to clean the gravel of the planted tank? It has fish in it and I don't want ammonia building up. I'm using eco complete that apparently has nutrients inside, so if I were to stick the gravel tube inside would I lose it all?

    I would definitely vacuum the gravel but don't push the vacuum into the substrate.
    EcoComplete tends to cloud the water after it is stirred up.
