its only bad if theres bad materials/organic matter etc trapped under it that are decomposing which screw up water and can make the water bad
all you do is stir the sand (might want filter off untill sand is at level where it wont get sucked in)
you can aslo syphone if theres to mush deco to remove

Deep beds are good if you plan on live plants. I prefer thinner beds (1 -2 inches) if you are going artificial as it leave more room for water. There is no 'rule', just a personal preference.

Just be sure to stir it up about twice a week, or get some Trumpet snails. I had a deep sand bed get a little rotten on me once and made my whole house stink like sulfur when I did finally stir it up.
