Me and my Wife have a 29 gallons tank that is home to the Wife's guppies that breed like wild fire, this tank is not heavy planted, so we have room for more.

plants that are in the tank

Water sprite, java moss, java fern, and 2 moss balls.

What we would like to be able to do is have enough or the right kind of plants that when the guppies have babies they don't get eaten by the other guppies, but i am unsure if we are going about this the right way or have the right plants. some of the water sprites are as tall as the tank and some are shorter.

Info on the tank

it is a standard 29 gallon, lighting is a coral life 30" t-5 light with 1 colormax 18 watt bulb and 1 6700k 18 watt, no co2 added, gravel is normal blue and tan gravel with plant gravel/sand mixed in (I don't rember what kind) and a Fluval 203 canister filter.

and my next question is: what is the best way to change the water in a planted tank? i use a gravel vac and go around the plants I change the water just like I would if it was a fish only set up is this the right way???
