Just another thought if you are going to set up a separate tank/area for pods is to fill it with pot scrubbers. They will multiply in there and it is a handy way to move them to your tank (just take the pot scrubber and shake it over your tank-well, several of them at least).

Another idea is to take several pot scrubbers and put them in your tank somewhere under some rubble and just change them out every day or so (put like 3-5 under some rubble to keep them in one spot).

Thanks smitty, I had forgotten about the pot scrubber thing.
I got a 10g tank and the lfs gave me a bag of pods and a bag of bigger pods from their sump with live sand too. I'm gonna start setting up the pod tank now. I got some regular sand and will add some out of my 29g and the sand given by the lfs. i may put a piece of lr in there too. not sure yet.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So I have had it up and running for a week now. I added about 20lbs of LR maybe 10lbs of base rock, a jar and a bag of pods. theres also some macro algae i got that you usually put in the sump in there too. Its heated to 78 degrees and I am using an air pump for aeration. I keep the lights on the same schedule as my other tanks.

What am I missing? i shouldn't run a filter on it since that defeats the purpose of growing tiny pods right? I have some on the glass but nothing special yet. the tank is also cycling due to the lr die off. I think ammonia has spike waiting for trites now.

Any comments? I'm open to any improvement
