    hey guys, i'm planning on running my system fish-less for a couple of months

    during that time i want to get tons of pods growing

    will pods be able to sustain themselves or should i keep feeding them something?

    atm i can't see any visible pods in my tank, just lots of worms about 10cm long

    what's the best way of boosting pod life?

    can we get these locally? http://cnb-host1.clickandbuild.com/c...dCategoryID=24

    or should i try get some pods from other VERY KIND reefers and throw them in?

    Just toss a very small amount of fish food in, they will need something to eat.

    I feed mine coralgro and formula one pellets. Which seems to be working. Also check out this months issue of reefkeeping magazine. There is a good article in with a link to the copepod handbook.
