    you have to add that water yes. all most of the bacteria and stuff that makes it live aragonite lives in there. so it will not affect your system what so ever. i added my bag of black hawaii live aragontite just like that into my system. and all is good and everything looks happy as can be. so there is no side effects that i have found so far

    its also better to have a bit of water in the tank already before you place the sand. you don't want to expose it to air for too long. also remember to put your live rock first so it can sit on the bottom glass directly and then add the sand around it
