Rinse! but gently...
Hi, I used it in my spec 3.
Definitely suggest rinsing it gently. If you have a cheap colander (dollar store plastic kind) you can use that to run the water over it gently. I stopped after a few minutes, water still dark but not so crazy. Some small bits may still run out but not too much. It will cloud up your water but with the awesome filtration on the spec, my tank was clear the next day!
When I uproot and replant stem plants there is still some cloudiness thrown up, but not bad and clears up very quickly.
