Mikaila31 is right, leave it. It is food for the plants. Bacteria will quickly break it down and the nutrients are assimilated by the plant roots. If you have open areas of gravel, I like to just skim over the surface with the Python every week during the partial water change, but never amongst the plants. I keep the open gravel along the front vacuumed only because I have corydoras, farlowella, and whiptails that feed along the substrate where I drop the tablets and pellets, and I like it to be clean for their barbels and whiskers.
