Is ADA Aquasoil good if been out of bag?

I have had a bag of the powder aquasoil for about a year now that i have never used. i discovered that it has a hole in in it and has since dried out. Is it still good to use? will it have all the benefits that it did in the beginning?

Thanks in advanced.

Should still be fine. Think of it as baked soil-clay particles. Might be more dusty than normal but water changes should take care of it.

It should be. I stored mine for a few months dry and it was basically the the same once wet. I wouldn't imagine it would be different for longer periods of time.
