Soil with BDS Cap Question
I got a new 75G and will be setting it up after I move in a few weeks. This will not be my first planted tank, but after doing research, I decided to try soil with BDS cap for the first time. I found a soil I like (Miracle Gro organic garden soil). I sifted it through chicken wire to remove the excess filler, put it in a bucket, and filled it with water. I plan to do a water change every day or two for a couple weeks until I get my tank moved in.
My question: When I flood the soil, about 60% of it floats to the top. Am I supposed to net all of that out, or is it fine to keep in the mix because it will be capped with sand?
Any help is appreciated.
