Why would you want the things that wont do anything for you? At least, thats how I look at it when I set up my dirted tank. These wood chip, and other stuff, they will float eventually, and you will find yourself constantly skimming the top water to remove all those stuff as it is not doing any good, but making my tank look not that good. If you sift them out first, you will have two benefits. One, not much time spending afterwards to remove them. Two, you have more room for more dirt.
