Exclamation Adding a large peice of driftwood today...

Hello! Hello!
I am taking out a small piece of driftwood from my 32g today and also three brazil swords (they are not really aquatic plants!)
I am replacing these with a much larger peice of driftwood that has been soaking in dechlorinated water for the past week....
At this same time I am also taking out a little bit of bigger substrate and replacing with finer substrate and planting 5 or 6 new plants.......

Does anyone think all of this plus a water change afterwards will drastically effect my water param's???
Not getting to it for about another hour and just curious to see what people think...

What are your KH and GH? If your hardness levels are high, then don't worry about your water chemistry alterred because pH won't once it is stabilized by the high KH.

Doesn't sound like this should be a problem.

Just keep an eye on your water parameters for a week or so after switching your substrate to make sure you don't have a mini cycle.
