adding mulm to substrate

Tom Barr,

You have mentioned a few times now that you have added mulm to the
substrate when setting up a new tank. At first, I was under the impression
that you were adding dried mulm as one would do with a laterite or soil
amendment. In the last couple of posts you mentioned bacteria, so, I am now
under the impression you are adding only the freshest mulm recently
harvested from the finest and dirtiest of filter media! Is this true? If
so, do you let it settle out and then decant the water to obtain the muck?
