    Why would you have to risk it?

    "... killed the cat".
    The active ingredient in liquid carbon is poisonous to a lot of life forms, so it will probably kill off some of the bacteria if you put enough of it in, but then it will probably also kill some of the life in the tank. But by all means, it's your tank and if you have the need to play Dr. Mengele, go ahead and do it...
