    I think it works more as a carbon source like vodka or vinegar dosing while adding some nitrates and phosphates... Some people say it works for diatoms. Seems like a lot of random info out there.

    If you are going to do it, make sure to mix it up well in a separate container, to not directly dose. Steve found that directly dosing lead to some issues with peeling in some acros. Bit would get logged in the coral and kill off that part.

    I have been doing it for almost a year now when Steve and I had a long talk about it. My pod population is insane. I dose a pinch directly to my refuge about every other day. I had it set up on a auto doser for sometime as well just need to find the doser so I can do it again.

    yup, I been getting mine at my local supermarket. Been lazy and cheap and don't want to pay shipping and handling. To add to what innerspark said, and steve, my tank is about 3-4 months old, and the pod population is that of a mature tank. I pick up frag plugs and look under, and they are covered in them.
