how to collect pods

As the title states, I am trying to figure out a way to collect pods. I have so many in my sump (in my macro) and I'd like to know a way to transfer as many as possible to my DT. I know some travel through the return pump but I'd like to transfer more. I know there's a trick to the trade if someone would like to share.

In the past I've put a clean, brand new bath pouf in there and give it a few days for the pods to hide in it. Then just take it out and shake it in the dt water. You can also just use a turkey baster but that depends on how many you're looking to transfer

Those are both good ideas. I will probably want more than the turkey baster but I like the pad idea.

I am going to try the poof thing too. I spend too much time with my turkey baster.

Brine shrimp direct sells a cheap set of screens that makes concentrating pods easy.
