I agree with Joe that it is really easy to do bad stuff with it. If you
notice, I advocate a *single* drop on a clump of moss. It feeds the
infusoria and does not cloud the water.
Two ways to kill babies are if the infusoria are all dead, because you use a
formaldehyde-like dechloraminator, or if you overfeed it. Both will allow
that rich egg product to foul the water and wipe out the babies.
Used with caution it is great. If you actually try to feed it to baby fish,
they will not touch it, but the mess it makes can quickly be lethal. Take
care. It is infusoria food only, IME.
