Apparently, this company has found something to do with unhatchable BS
eggs.  They sell them as fish food.  Some fry accept them and some don't,
so YMMV.  It's advisable to soak them in water for about 10 minutes before
feeding so they don't get eaten dry and then swell up in the fry's stomach,
potentially causing rupture and death.
