If you can obtain a starter culture, you could try farming them as described at this website:

says it takes about six weeks, but it could be a good backup source for live foods. I think I'm going to give it a try

What type of filtration do you have? I have a sump and every few days I pull out the filter pad above the trickle plate and it has several pods all over it. I just pick them up and drop them into the dislay tank. Check your filters, you may be surprised.

I might be out of luck on that one...I do not use mechanical filtration. Just live rock, DSB, a remora pro and weekly water changes. I have had very good success with this method...especially after shelling out the money for an RO system.
