now now george!  Don't be rappin' dupla for something I can prove they
are not doing.  I have some finely pinated plants in my tank (hornwort,
milfoil and java moss comes to mind) and I do ocassionally add dupla 24
drops.  I have been running some test to see if it is really needed (so
far I can't tell a difference but that's another discussion)  I have
noticed that using and not using them doesn't make a difference as for
sae's eating the leaf, they will nibble on the algae growing on there
but the leaf is ok when they are done. :)

It is my theory that either a) they are eating bad leaf's b) that
someone's sae's are spitfull and perhaps starved and/or c) that sae's
have esp but there wires are crossed :)
