Water changes will help you tank because it will dilute the poluted water in your tank with fresh water. That is why water changes are so beneficial.
Also, Prime turn ammonia into Ammonium which is not toxic to fish. It also makes nitrite neutral and not harmful to fish for a period of about 24-48 hours.
I would do daily testings. If any ammonia or nitrite appear. do at least a 30% water change.
If you see a spike then you want to do at least a 50% water change. When and if an ammonia or nitrite spike occurs you can double or triple dose with prime to help with the fish.
Keep checking every day and once things settle down you can switch to once a week 30% water changes and every month you can do about a 50% water change and clean stuff out.
You don't want to clean the filter unless its decomposing and falling apart. The bacteria in there are good for the tank.
Try also not to disturb the substrate as bacteria will live in there as well.

The newest one I got was rotting when i got it and it now has 3 new leaves and the roots are starting to green.
Doing really well so far :)
You can see here how the stem is some what rotted. The three small leaves in the middle are new and there is green starting to come from the ryzome.
It's a bad picture. I will take a better one later to put up.
I have the rhizome about 1 inch above the substrate.
