Cleaning tank has nothing to do with live plants...tank is cleaned as to bring the nitrate levels down..it is advisable to partly change the water as changing total water may give fishes shock due to sudden change in water chemistry....live plants absorb bit of nitrates..you should siphon out all the remaining food debris dying plant parts etc while performoing pwc..

After the aquarium has an established nitrogen cycle, change about 25 percent of the water every week. More frequent partial water changes are required in smaller aquariums. If you're new to the hobby, you may want to read this blog:
