Tropica Soil question

I bought a bag of Tropica soil for my 7.4 gal tank I just set up. Do I need to cap this with gravel or sand?
Didn't think I did but I found an article where someone said they did that. Of course I already set the
tank up but no fish yet and it has to cycle so I can fix that if I have to. I've never used this type of substrate, usually eco complete or black sand. Tank will be for a Betta.

Nope, no need to cap it. It's similar to ADA Aquasoil.

No you dont have to unless you want to cap with other sand/substrate for decor.
