Power sand mixed into soil after rescape, help!

I've had power sand advance and a base layer on my last Scape, topped with tropica soil.

Since taking the old Scape apart everything got mixed up. I've tried separating the power sand from the substrate stone by stone but I lost the will to live.

The power sand is around 9 months old. Is it likely all of the extra ADA magic has been exhausted and is no longer going to cause me issues if it's distributed amongst the substrate?

Will be capping with fresh tropica soil, but I only have 3L so it won't be a super thick layer.

Thanks!

Hi
It will be fine.Have no worries.
Only downside will be if you don't like the look of it on top and it makes its way up ;)

Thankfully there are a lot of plants going in and it won't be seen! I just don't want an algae bomb

Hi
If you get algae it won't be the cause of it.
I have reused Amazonia mixed with power sand special before without any issues.
