"An infusion is simply a liquid-based mixture. Aquarium circles normally
consider this to be vegetable matter decomposing in standing water, as when
we make the attempt to raise fry food in a jar. Infusoria is the popular
term for single-celled protozoa that find life comfortable in an infusion."

This, of course, is the opening paragraph for the page at
http://www.mindspring.com/~nestor10/food-fE4.htm . Since this article was
written I've discovered that the _proper_ term is "infusorians"...
