Nope, sorry. My pods came from the live rock and macro algae I bought. Got the rock from my LFS and algae from LA. And they made it thru hypo a couple of times. Though you normally won't see them very much unless you have a fuge or filter where the fish can't get to them. Otherwise they hide in the rock and sand.

Live pods are an excellent way to start your population. Turn off all filtration and pumps for 20-30 minutes and let them settle after you temp acclimate them by floating the bottle in the tank.

What about powerheads? Do you turn those off as well? I just ordered some pods so your information on how to introduce them is helpful

Yes. You want a still stank so the pods are able to float down to a safe place.

Yes you should. You can always ask whoever you are getting it from to make sure.
