    Hi I recently got a new 10 gal and was wondering that once a tank has cycled do you still have to vacuum the substrate during water changes or should the tank be able to decompose leftover food and droppings by itself without an amonia spike

    You still need to vacuum. You can add something like SeaChem Prestine that will help remove/process it, but I think you still need to rotate cleaning each change.
