Planted tanks aren't exactly less maintenance. They need to be trimmed, if you are dosing and running CO2 , you need to check your levels periodically. Planted tanks also have a lot of debris. Ever so often the plants will need to be thinned out.
However, they are worth the work IMO, and it's really not that difficult.

Yep, constantly cleaning the intake tubes clogged with plant debris, pulling off yellowed leaves & trimming overgrowth. Just like tending to a garden.

My wife likes gardening lol, these anubias sound interesting, time for a google search lol
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly
