How many of you use MTS's and do they just stir the substrate or do they serve other purposes??

good for brown diatoms, clearing mulm on the surface of gravel
bad for fish eggs -- no babies since I added the MTS
mixed for filters,-- get into filters, keep them cleaned up, but can get into lines and rattle or plug spray bar holes or impeller

Also great at uprooting freshly planted small plants...

I have a LOT better luck with aquatic plants than with houseplants ... mb this is a sign.
