    Hi Guys

    I have no pods in my tank, I cured a puffer of ich a year ago with hyposalinty (I was ignorant and didn't know any better) and my tank has
    finally fully recovered, the only thing that is missing is pods, they never came back, even after buying new live rock.


    I live in Cape Town, CBD, could anyone please sort me out with some pods please.

    I have, mostly small worms and such but no pods that i can see, also the temperature differences will be to great I'm sure.
    Thx for the reply.

    Mookz - if you don't get quick enough, (many reefers would also give you come Chaeto, which SHOULD contain a lot of pods as well), you can always go to the higher (warmer) rock-pools (even the smaller one's). I have found MANY pods there....
    Also inbetween the lettuce (alva) macro algae in the rockpools higher up the rocks.... These SHOULD survive fine because of the water temps of these pools....
    (I have added these to my tank before, and these survived 100% fine in my tank and sump)......

    ill give you a rock coated in amphipods, you just need an area that is protected for them to reproduce in and not get chowed

    Thanks, that would be great, I will construct a little ventilated container for the rock to stay in for a couple of weeks.

    Hey all - if anyone is still looking for pods then I am more than happy to help.

    I have a literal pod breeding farm in my mantis tank. The glass and every surface is crawling with them!

    So, if anyone wants something seeded then my mantis tank is happy to accommodate. I'll only be available to help out as of next month, under some hectic deadline pressure at the moment. Please pm if you need help, cheers
