Default bottling questions/problems

So I just bottled my first cyser. It's a raspberry cyser. I racked it into a bottling bucket and dropped a bag of thawed raspberries in. Let it sit for about a day then pulled the bag out. It then sat for another 3-4 days before bottling. After bottling I noticed that there was a pretty thick layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle (up to an inch in some of my 22's). I was hoping that it would settle and compact in the bottom.

This morning I look in the boxes and see that now the "stuff" is floating on top of the liquid. Did I screw something up majorly or will that eventually fall out?

it's fruit pulp or something. it floats to the top in a bit "cake" when you flip the bottle over

Well, there is a huge difference between .990 and .999 though. "Below 1" doesn't ensure it was done fermenting, especially if the fruit's sugars weren't finished.
