Can anyone, Rocksor, etc., who has experimented with Earthworm Septic, tell me the best way to introduce it into the tank? I found the old threads where it is discussed, but wasn't clear on the explanations given, exactly how it is to be done. I am assuming I dissolve it (one tablespoon for every 50-75 gallons) in tank water first and then pour it back in?

Problem is I am having a heck of a time getting it to dissolve.

It is a natural bacteria that is used in septic systems but is also used in pond maintenance. It is much much cheaper than buying the made for pond versions, but does the same thing and works in aquariums too. I want to use it primarily to keep my canister hoses running clean as it helps to prevent gunk buildup, but, according to what I read here, it is also beneficial for other things, bacteria wise, as well.
