Not that I am right, lots of people have different opinions on this.
I do a complete gravel cleaning on most of my tanks every week. The tank with an UGF, gets an extra good gravel cleaning, because it can get pretty nasty.
My planted tanks, I cant really do a full vacuum on, but I get it as clean as possible.
On my 210, I do 25% water changes every week. On that tank, one half gets a gravel cleaning, the other half the next week. Thats all the gravel cleaning I can get to and only change out 25% of the water.
Even doing fish cycles, I have cleaned in the same manner, which some say is a terrible thing to do.
Anyways, I have had no problems with water quality and for the most part my fish stay healthy, so it works for me.
