Pods are in the house!!

Was changing my polyfilter tonight, as usual it had quite a few of these little guys in it. Shot a quick pic, seen many posts asking what pods look like.
When I returned them to the tank, my fish chowed them before they hit the bottom.

Yes, some of us have to buy pods. I recently set up a 75 gal and I am waiting for the pods to reproduce to help with filtration. I propably have some, but can't see many yet. I saw a couple when I added some lr and ls, Just waiting

Where do you buy pods as I was told you cant buy them from the LFS? What do you ask for when trying to buy them?

There are some websites that sell detravore kits that will have some pods in them. If you have live rock I would be suprised that you dont have any. About an hour after your lights go out use a flashlight and start looking around your tank on the substrate and the rock. You should see all kinds of things in your tank that you didnt know about.

Quarryshark, thanks for adding that photo to the photogallery also. More misc inverts that can be found in yoru tank after lights out can be seen here.

I had panicked lately and was going to plop down a lot of money for a lot of Pods because I have a Mandarin in a 6 month old tank and did not want him to starve. Then by luck I took a look at the tank well after lights out and I thought one of my ph had fallen because the sand was blowing everywhere. When I realized it was not the ph I went back and saw it was thousands of little pods running and playing and frolicing about. They did not seem to notice or care that Manny was hovering over them having dinner on their little friends. After that, my worries went away.

And the amphipods, the big hunched-over c-shaped ones, are strong and springy in your hand! I pick em out of my gac filters and throw them back in for mandarin and they spring around and squirm around.
