True, though I'd have preffered live foods AND fish.... :)  Scuds
(Grammarus) are relatively easy to culture.  They'll do well in any tank
with plants and fish in it, to harvest, simply dstir up the gravel.  This
isn't exacctly something to do in the living room, but its been the best
manner I've found.  They feed off detritus and such in the gravel, and
keep it from settling. In the pond, they live fine off of the leaf litter
and such that gathers down there.
