I'm considering using blackworms and snails to keep the soil aerated to avoid bacteria, and to 'poke' it every so often to be sure there are no bubbles.
Thats part of the reason you limit it to a 2-3 inch max substrate bed. Any thicker and you have too many anerobic gas problems. The first week or so I had some gas pockets, after that no more problems.
