Since you'll be doing partial water changes, leaving him in his fine. He'll be curious of the siphon though, so water out for him! If removing the plants/decor makes moving the siphon around easier, then by all means go for it. When putting the new conditioned water on, make sure it's similar in temperature to the water in your tank, which can be checked with your finger.
