Well I picked up a single bag of the MGOPS today and spent about a half hour sifting it with small old window screen, this allowed me to get really fine soil, left about 1/3 of the bag left over with the wood chunks and bigger stuff. I had a 2-3 layer in the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket for the fine stuff, I added water to just let it sit overnight and soak up all the liqued and get the mud mixture going.
I do not plan to mineralize the soil, I am going to direct these mud injections under specific plants, my swords, crypts and hygros. Think of it more like a longer term liqued fert tab. These are plants I don't plan to uproot any time soon so the soil can mix with the sand, since its so fine it may spread and provide a nice layer of organics in the sand that normally takes years to develop waiting for the fish mulm to saturate your substrate.
