today I set up another 55. dirt with a bit of flourite capped with black diamond. This is my 3rd tank with black diamond and the last 2 tanks I rinsed and still got a little slick. This tank I have not rinsed and have about the same amount of "slick". ....looks crappy for a while and then goes away. I found that if I take my planting tongs and swish it around to break up the surface tension the slick drops the minute particulates and it looks less exon-valdez.
