pods

ok since upgrading to a 75, ive add'ed 50lbs of liverock, 60lbs of live sand. IT's been about two monthes i have not seen any pods at all. All my rock is from different stores so i have a variety, what could my problem be. Do these fish eat pods two percs, coral beuty, blue tang and hawkfish. and is there a place on the internet to find out how to produce them, or buy them. tia

Have you taken a flashlight and checked your tank several hours after all lights have been shut off? You may be surprised at what you find. There are places to buy pods and such online if you still feel you need to.

Do you still have the mandarin goby listed in your profile? Just about any fish/inverts can go after pods if they are so inclined but you don’t have any listed that primarily go for them besides the mandarin in your profile. Breading or even maintaining pods in the main can be difficult. It would be better to do it in a refugium without predators.

You can buy them from the following if you need/want to jump start your tank.

Sorry to hear about the mandarin As long as you don’t plan on getting another one or one that does eat pods I wouldn’t really worry about adding them, they will prorogate on there own in time.

What kind of filtration do you have? I keep my pod population pretty well this way. I have a hang on back tetratec 500 filter(any hob will work) and instead of filter media, it is full of live rock rubble. This gives the pods somewhere safe to breed and they come and go from the intake and overflow. Kinda like a low cost no maintenance refuge.
