Aqua soil question

Ok i just got my aqua soil in today, heavy box i must say, but is it a good idea to prerinse it before it goes in the tank also the same with the power sand. I never had this stuff so its new to me. I dont want to make a mistake
Thanks

No rinsing of either one. You'll have a muddy mess on your hands if you rinse the AS...Have you read up on cycling with aquasoil?

ok thanks for information, I stopped home for lunch as saw that the A S came and i really didnt have much time to read it, lots of japenesse on it. But will look at the bag better when i get home. I did read a little on here on cycling it, The tank has thats its going in has been running for like 4 years so im experimenting with the Aqua soil since it had great outcomes for everyone. How long will it take to get settled and to put the fish back in?

I might refer you to this thread, post #24...https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/su...-months-2.html

There's a lot of really good information about AS available; maybe do a search?

don't rinse. you'll make a mess.
just be very careful when filling. and i mean, VERY VERY CAREFUL.
i got very minimal cloudiness when placing the aquasoil bag over the substrate and letting the water run over the bag slowly.

There should be a small booklet of instruction inside the bag in English.
