Interesting read....I guess that's the answer to why there are two parts to the "turbo clear" sold by HBS. The first must be a negative charge and the second a positive charge. Always wondered that ;-)

I have used something very similar in commercial aquariums. Large fish tend to make large messes, and fining makes siphoning debris much easier.
The only reason I mention it is the safety aspect. If fish survive with it in their environment, i'm sure people will do just fine with it in their hootch. ... Bright.htm
I'd bet a bag of doughnuts they are the same product.
