    First time I have used ADA Aquasoil Amazonia do you need to rinse it b4 putting in the tank? To prevent cloudyness?

    No, don't rinse it.

    Just fill up your tank VERY slowly to prevent clouding. Rinsing it will wash away a lot of the 'goodness'.

    Tip: Use a plastic bag to cover the substrate/plants and pour the water slowly on the bag. That way, it shouldn't mix up the plants and substrate.

    Did you get it second hand?

    When I bought it it had quite good (translated from Japanese) instructions included on a sheet of paper inside the bag (which you won't have seen if you haven't opened yours yet!).
