You can add it on top, or with such a small amount you can mix it up. However, you don't want to add more tha 1/2" per day/every other day, to allow any fauna to migrate to the upper levels. Also,, seeing your in Ft Lauderdale, your going to have a devil of a time finding SD. If you'd like I can get you the name of the source, in Ft Meyers, they will sell it to you for 20.00 per ton
