I would hope no one has a large amount of infusoria being cultured in their tank, as they, the infusoria, are feeding on decaying vegetable matter. And as we know, decaying organic matter raises nitrites and ammonia levels in the tank. It is far better to culture infusoria in a dish and not in the aquarium.
