Do you try to disturb aquasoil in an attempt to reduce organics in the tank (fish poop)? I've been using a pipette to disturb the top layer then siphon but it takes a long time to do the entire substrate.

I have about 50 shrimp and lightly feed fish. I'm not sure if there's a good amount of buildup that should be cleaned.

Yes.. I do that when I uproot a lot of plants. Gives me a chance to clean the substrate and pick out dead leafs.
