Well, the bubbles are gas but the tunnels are from your pods and worms.

Dumped into my hang-on fuge, and now I'm in pod heaven. I need to pull half the chaeto out of the fuge tho, so I'm bound to lose some. I don't notice them in my tank, but its a lot easier to spot them in a small fuge.

Sounds like we both found out that weve got pods today!

Just don't go running down the street yelling "I've got pods!"

Pods only come out at night while the scooter is sleeping. How does the fish consume it?

yep, you are right. That is why I have the amphipods is out of control. I can see hundreds of those. Any suggestions to control them? I don't know if the amphipods are the cause of my sand getting some black bits.

i have a jaw fish that wont except any prepared foods...had it 4 weeks now and i have yet to see him eat anything i put in the tank but when i first turn the lights on it goes nuts at all the scattering pods...it is now trained itself that when the lights come on...he eats so i think even though they come out at night the fish still get to consume food
