I use Aquasoil with both my tanks, and I put all the soil in carefully, without any rinsing, lay the empty bag down over the soil and slowly fill up. In both my cases, there was absolulely no mess at all. From what I have been reading, some cases people had used the powder type and it was a real mess. My tank was real clear in an hour or so.
Don't forget to check the ammonia levels as they go very, very high for a couple of weeks. I did daily water changes for two weeks and the ammonia was at 0 in exactly 14 days. I also did 80-100% changes too. My glosso is starting to spread and the riccia is taking off also. Good luck!!
I forgot to add, Glosso really likes C02, so if you don't have any now, you may want to do something about that.
