Well I have heard of it now. But besides you saying never heard of it.

This is the same root idea behind adding vodka or vinegar to your tank. The sugars feed bacteria that consume nitrates.

My big question is "How do you know it's going to be _good_ bacteria that eat the sugar?" (I can imagine a cyano outbreak..)
