    Hey guys, I want to build a pod creating colony in my sump so that it can help with the pod population in the DT which is home now to two Mandarins and three wrasses all of which consume pods continuously.

    Do any of the sponsors (in JHB/PTA) have good macro algae for this ? Was thinking up using some macro algae together with live rock in a "basket" in the sump. Then would run the lighting in reverse order to the DT.

    Would also like to know if there is any special care that you need to employ to have the macro algae stable and not die off.

    Can swing past for some Chaeto if you like. As long as there's light in the sump and parameters are stable it should be fine
