Ok, I gotta ask you all this.... Why would you spend so much money on a planting substrate, that is full of beneficial bacteria and such, then take it home, drain off the water that is with the soil, then rinse with chlorinated tap water (that will ultimatly kill or wash out all the "good stuff"), then use it to "cap" substrate??
Get black sand or gravel next time. Waste of money. Capping does not help roots at all, especially since you just "deactivated" all the good beneftis of eco.
My advise next time. Drain your tank, take out the old substrate and replace in kind with the ECO. or if you "capping", get inert stuff thats a heck of a lot cheaper.
