Default floating spices

In my spiced cider, my orange zest and cloves are floating at the top--will they eventually fall to the bottom? Is it a real concern? I'm hoping to not transfer them to secondary--but worried they'll get sucked into my siphon hose

Some stuff floats, some sinks. The flavors will be transferred regardless, as a ferment is rather active and the cider will mix. You can always put some cheese cloth over the end of the siphon.
