They require some kind of lighting to thrive. But will make do with no light.

sweet. I think I'm set, i have regular incandescent lights. All I need is to get a bag of sand and some LR rubble. This could be done in a day. woot!

Just gotta wait for the 10g to open up, the female cichlid inside just had her babies today! So I gotta wait for them to get a little bigger before I can start this project.
I didnt think growing my own pods was practical. why doesnt everyone do it? there would never be any starving mandarins or blennys

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have this circular light that I'm thinking of installing to the top of a bucket and putting a heater inside. Then adding some sand, an air stone, and some rock, how does this sound? Oh and do I have to like cycle it? No right? Salinity? Thanks.

I would let it cycle a bit.

All tanks need to be cycled.

I've seen a guy on youtube who was keeping rotifiers and pods in a completely blacked-out tank (minus a red light). I think why everyone doesn't do it is room, waste of a tank (essentially) and it's probably harder than one thinks

Looks like I'm getting the bio cube tomorrow so I guess i better get started on this project. LOL

Would flake food ground up be a good food for the pods? I think I have almost all the information that I need to do this.

"green water" seems the best for them. That's what most people use.
