Perlite in soil

Good Afternoon Everyone,

By mistake, i used organic potting soil with perlite. I understand that it will float to the top, but i'm not totally worried about that since these are small tanks (2.5 and 6 gallons).

Other then it floating to the top, will perlite harm the tank in another way? Since these are already set up with a cap planted and all, is it really worth taking it apart and restarting?

A Good Idea

Is a Good Idea Forever
