POD question

I have seen several people talk about POD packages they have purchased. I have called all of the LFS in the Dallas area and no one knows what I am talking about much less if they can get them.
So, I want to know where you guys get POD packages? Im wanting it for the regal tang I just bought. Hes in QT right now but would like to add the PODS to the main tank now and let them populate. I have about 80 lbs of LR and dont think I have very many PODS from what i can tell...
Thanks

Do tangs need pods? The LFS I got mine from called it a bug kit Not sure if it helped but I am seeing more pods in the fuge now. Premium aquatics sells rubble by the pound that I tried as well.

I know inland aquatics sells a kit but there is another place that sells pods pretty cheap. Should come up in a search for pods.

Sorry I can't help more.

I would give it more time and check things after lights out. Chances are good you do have a decent population, they're just remaining nocturnal.

If not.... http://ipsf.com/

No, they are primarily herbavors. While most fish (and corals) will benefit from pods, the main fish will be planktonivors.

In regards to your Pod's... I started a fuge and it helps a lot! My LFS sold me 15 lbs of rubble from his LR tank. My mandarine seems to be doing much better with a more abundant supply. I agree with Steve, you may have a better Pod population that you think. Go to Ebay and see whats out there, you'll be surprised. Good luck and take care.

I never really see PODS in my tank, but tonight i have a crab trap set up and i was just checking in on it with a flash light and they are all over the place in there, so I have to agree that you may have more then you think!

Is that a misspelling or a trap set up to see just what exactly is in your tank?

I did a water change on my crab tank and cleaned a sponge filter on my PH when I got back, there were little critters all over the glass. Dirty water helps I think

I never see them in my main tank. They are hiding from the mandarin.

I have gone in and looked at the tank in the middle of the night (by means of the moonlight I have going) and never do see anything. Im sure they are in there as well....just would like to know.
Also if I go on Ebay to look for POD packages, what do I search for? What are the key words that everyone uses as I dont find anything.
Thanks
