You can syphon it out if you want. If you have sand substrate be very careful not to syphon out the sand while your trying to get the detrius.

Yep. The turbos were definitely noticed when I added mine. I hardly recognize the stuff now, since I've tried to ensure there are no dead spots in the tank for poop to settle and be noticed. Everyonce in a while I'll brush near the rocks to stir up some that settles there and have it go to overflow and filter. Or siphon the rocks as Fishfreek said. I usually don't bother it at all now. Guess I got used to it now.
