Benthic diatoms will have no use to anything except maybe snails. Pelagic diatoms (phytoplankton) are worth culturing if you have something that eats them but it's extremely time consuming.

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me
