    How bad are dead spots in a tank ?

    How bad is it to have spots in the tank behind LR that has no water movement at all, i'm assuming pretty bad ?

    It is not the best situation because stuff will settle in these dead spots and rot. The wrong types of diatoms and algae can also find a foothold in these areas.
