I would consider plant decomposition to be bad. When plants decompose, they release a lot of nutrients and organic matter into the water. This will fuel bacteria growth (water cloudiness) and oxygen uptake, which could hurt/kill the fish. Keep your water oxygenated to protect fish.

Healthy plants take up nutrients and purify the water for fish. Dying plants release nutrients and contaminate the water.
