    I have a question.

    In your sumps (those of you who have them) you often create an area where pods are able to breed and establish themselves therefore feeding the display tank. Can all the Pods survive the return pump to Display tank?

    I know the Skimmers are no good for the pods, but does the return Pump not kill them as well, or am I mistaken?

    Some might get a shot from the impeller, otherwise it will be a roller coaster ride for the rest.
