Well, I knew I had at least some when my first diatom bloom happened after the cycle...
Woke up that morning and there were tons of little white specs all over the glass grazing (I assumed) on the algae.
From what I read they are blasted tiny little guys (and that's why I assumed these were pods (and then asked here if they'd behave that way)).

They were probably some form of copepod. There are some good pics on theCopepod page.

Pods will happen in time, Dont add pod eating fish until at least 1yr. Stay away from mandarins unless you have ton of live rock and a big pod population.
