algae bloom risk?

so my tank is in desperate need of a rescape, since its been setup ive been getting new plants and just kinda throwing them in the substrate where theres room. well the tank is getting kinda stuffed and not really organized at all. with the substrate being disturbed pretty much through the whole tank if I do a rescape will I have to be worried about a algae bloom when I rescape or even a brown diatom bloom?

whats the best way to rescape without having to worry about this stuff?

I move crap around often... A few days ago I moved some crypts, swords(with rather large root systems), rocks, stems all the time... I even scoop substrate and move it around, and lots of it.

I have sand though so there isn't anything substantial under its surface.

I think as long as you do a major water change right afterwards you will be fine... And maybe another the next day. If you are going to do something major perhaps it might be a good time to switch to sand.... or maybe just something more.... I dunno.... natural looking?

went ahead and moved pretty much everything around tank looks totally different - not sure if I like it yet or not though. took a pic of before and ill get on after tomm after I get home. I did all the moving around about a hr before lights off well see how it works out.

not gunna switch till after its warm out. washing sand in the tub sucks... done it before. so much easyier with the hose outside
