will make it through to populate the tank. (if you don't have anything feeding off them while they're trying to populate)
I never seen any pods
in my tank until I got some cheato from someone off craigs list with a 125 6yr old reef. The cheato had a BUNCH of pods
and tiny snails in it. Really good stuff. That was about 2 months ago i think and now......there's pods
everywhere in my tank.
on the rocks, substrate........they're everywhere since I don't have any fish that mainly feed off them. My clown has figured it out and spends a decent amount of time near the substrate eating them.
Point is......enough will make it through.
