Can I save wet Amazonia?
 
I think I put too much in my new tank, can I just store excess in some tupperware or ziplocks? Do I need to refrigerate it?

It's not been planted but it has been cycling in my tank the last week.

Personally, I'd just drain and dry it.

+1 for Gomer's comment; I air-dried and then stored some I was using in an emersed set-up.

Just do this.

I recommend just drying it to slightly moist, not totally dry. I once let some similar Azoo substrate dry out completely and it all just fell apart and turned to dust.
