Hey guys

Currently im running a 125l juwel tank with the bioflow with gravel & plants

Im doing my maintence roughly every 2-3 weeks, but what sprang to mind is when I'm siphoning my tank should i really being trying to get the bits of crap burried underneath or should i be concentration more with the fresher stuff and leave whats below for the plants themselves to break down?

Yes, unless it leaf litter you have added for other reasons. Removing any decaying organic material helps reduce the DOC (Dissolved Organic Compounds) load in the tank, which in turn leads to less algae issues
