    I have chaeto in sump which used to be filled with pods. When the DT lights go off, the pods could be seen crawling all over the LR and arragonite similar to ants on the ground. I harveted chaeto this weekend and could not find any pods, not one, nada, zip! What could have caused their dissapearrance?

    Puzzled :032:

    Im gonna tag along as mine has gone as well. When I lift rocks, I see hundreds of tunnels underneath it in the aragonite, so maybe they have all gone underground.

    Do you shake your cheato out before harvesting?

    Most important question - Did you give the cheato away?

    Weird, must be something in the air, mine has no pods on as well this week?

    Also not seeing any on the surface when I feed and the pumps are off.

    A subscribed it to having a green banded goby that jumped over the wall and lived in there for a few days. Perhaps you have a pod "predator" somewhere in you sump?

    No it traps a lot of detritus so I take it out and rinse it in a seperate container. Discard the dirty water after 'fishing' out the pods and feeding to fish. Binned the chaeto. This time no pods what so ever.
