Adding fruit to the secondary, would it becoming moldy be a concern at all?

I left my blueberries in for 7 days, the CO2 should protect them for the week. Try not to keep opening it up because oxygen will get in and your fruit might start to mold.

Does the fruit ( blueberries) float or sink?

Will start on the bottom then after 24 hours they will float to the top and will stay there.

Would it be a bad idea to stir the blueberries back into the carboy when I switch from a blowoff tube to airlock? I racked on top of 10 lbs last night and mixed it in (tons of bubbles came up to the top, I'm guessing it was CO2) and all the berries were sitting at the top this morning.

Just cracked open my 1st bottle of a blueberry cream ale. I used 3lbs in a 2.5 gal batch, and wish I had used at least another pound. I used frozen, but sterilized them at 170 F for 15 min with a bit of water. Still have NO IDEA how much fermentable suger it added or what my actual ABV is.
