Dirty corner

I have a "dirty"corner on the right side of my tank below the duck bill. Can I syphon that corner without disturbing the parameters? Seems like crud just wants to build up there. Least amount of circulation.

If you can get your python (or whatever you are using) into that corner you should get that during a PWC. Anything building up can and will become a problem.

Any trash needs to be siphoned up if possible. If you can get it now it would be better.

I will syphon it out today. Tight spot, I have a really nice mushroom growing from the corner. So, I will need to be careful
I will have to take some gravel with it I am sure of that

See if you can rearrange your rockwork or add a PH to correct that problem.
