[On fusaric acid selection...]
>: Roughly 80-90% of colonies on these plates were (in my hands) Tet sensitive. 
One thing I found helped was incubating at 30C.  The selection seems more
effective if the cells are growing/dividing more slowly.

Oh - and of course you have to grow the cells in the absence of Tet prior
to plating them out.  Else all the ones you want are dead :-(

A fact is an opinion that everyone agrees with.
