osmoscote question

I'm trying to use osmoscote as fert for now.

If I just drop them in my tank, then it lays on the top of the substrate. then I push them down into my substrate.

My question is, is that couple minutes laying on the substrate surface will be a problem?

I know you can use galatin capsules or ice cube. But I want to know about the method I describe above.

Most people put it in a 00 pill capsule and then you plant it at the bottom against the glass on the bottom. Good for 6x6 inches.

This is going off of what I read. Haven't tried yet.
