Air in substrate after initial filling

Hi

I finally have my 75 gal up and running, put my carpet plants in a couple of days ago. I got my tiger lotus bulbs and plant weights in today, so I planted the "bonus" stem plants that came with the dwarf hairgrass mats. In doing so I noticed air bubbling up when I planted the stem plants, so I started poking the substrate and found a lot of air bubbling up. Is this normal? And if so should you poke the substrate a day or so after filling to release the air? There was no foul smell and nothing has been in the tank long enough to decay.

Fairly normal yes. What kind of substrate?
