Will air left in decor cause issues?

Hey guys! Was doing a rather large water change in my recently setup mbuna tank and a thought crossed my mind. I have quite a few hollow rocks and whatnot that are faced to the side or wherever and if the water would ever dip below them and then fill again, there would be some air trapped inside there. Would this cause an issue?

An issue with what?

The water should fill in again due to the pressure. If any bubbles are trapped and you can't just tilt the rock and get the bubble out, you can use a small air tube like if you were vacuuming but suck out the air bubbles.

I wasn't sure if there would be issues like when it sometimes gets trapped under the sand. Just popped into my head since I have some rocks stacked so moving everything around to make sure there's no air there seemed troublesome

In sand you can get anaerobic spots/ lack of or no O2.

I don't know of any issues you would have to worry about. Maybe someone else???
