I have been waiting too. I guess the stars lined up for me! He ate frozen in the store and I have a ton of pods. I have two mag floats in the tank and when I pull the outside one off, the inside one is crawling with pods. They are everywhere! I will monitor him closely and make sure he is eating prepared and will have a bottle of pods on standby just in case. My sump is also crawling with them. I think he will be ok. Fingers crossed!
