How much LR do you have in your tank? What is your filter set-up? Look on your filter pads or on your tank at night with a flashlight. How old is your tank?

look at your LR at night with a red light. I bet you have far more pods than you think. mine are tiny, but when they're on the glass I can see them zooming around. they're smaller than fleas or gnats

The larger pods showed up in my tank after about 3 weeks.
