Killing Daphnia with "Amquel."

There has been a thread on this subject, lately on the killietalk list, that
deserves a mention here.

Mach Fukada pointed out that "Amquel" seemed to kill his Daphnia. Since I
had suffered some mysterious crashes, I tested it. Sure enough a glass of
Daphnia, Ostracods and mosquito larvae left alone survived nicely, but one
with a strong solution of "Amquel" (125:1 water to "Amquel") killed an
identical glass overnight. The Ostracods survived, but everything else was
dead the next day.

Curious. I never would have guessed it.

         "DEMOCRACY" is two wolves and a lamb voting on lunch.
     "LIBERTY" is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote.
