Don't worry, I read the MSDS when I ordered it. I use the 25% stuff from JT Baker

I'm surprised it is used in embalming; I knew it was used in tissue fixation and electron microscopy. I would suppose it'd used in embalming when mixed with formaldehyde.

Back to the original topic though; yes, glutaraldehyde can be toxic to more sensitive plants (Vallisneria spp. comes to mind immediately), but if it is dosed according to Seachem's directions, I have never had problems with it.
