    Hi Guys,

    I had the pleasure of seeing some other tanks in the past few days and what I have noticed is sumps that are swarming with pods.

    I have a nearly new tank and would like top bulk up the amount of life in the sump.

    I wonder if anyone would be able to help me get this right. maybe swop some live rock?

    maybe some infested chaeto?


    what would you all suggest?:p

    I found when I started with the larger angels, and over feeding to keep them off the corals, that really helped the pods as there was a ton of food for them. But excess food has it's own set of problems with out a decent skimmer.
