I just stirred some of my sand bed. Do I have reason to be worried?

Funny enough, while doing some manual removal of algae in my tank, I discovered my Lawnmower Blenny in the pump chamber! Dude's been missing for a week! Well, now he's just swimming around in the display again. Silly goose.

So for context, in my 32g Biocube, I have a dummy thicc 4 inch bed. In this sandbed, I have a diamond goby, fighting conch, and 5 nassaruis snails.

I ended up stirring up probably a quarter or so of the sandbed in search of a rock that my diamond goby had buried. Go figure. At any rate, I did end up stirring enough of the bed that I released some trapped air bubbles. Nothing huge, but bubbles were released at any rate.

So really what I'm asking is, do I have cause to be worried? I probably have the cleanest bed you've ever seen because of how many sand shifters I have. But everytime I Google, "stirring sand bed in reef aquarium." Every post seems to warn of tank nukeage.
only if its deep and nothing is stirring it. should be fine

I wouldn't worry about it.
