Default cleaning the tank???

Hi all

Been looking at a lot of pages etc, it seems the pygmy chameleon seems like a good starter lizard, they are hardy and requiresa small terrarium so thats good.

one thing I can't get aorund is cleaning? How often must it be done, and how do you actually clean the tank properly if there is soil on the bottom, do you have to change that every 2 weeks?

I've only kept mammals before and that usually involved completely changing the substrate and just cleaning all the crockery and stuff inside. With a Lizard habitat how do you clean the plants, soil and all that stuff, seems kinda difficult?

If you keep liv plants doesnt it make it harder to maintain or does a plant survive easily?

Thanks
