Wow, I'd be really interested in what it requires to get a license. I just can't see them giving them out to many people.

I've ordered my pods from reefcleaners in the past with good results. Not sure if they still carry the ones I got but it's worth a look.

I tried the "pod tank" for a few months and had pretty much no results. Had the filter, rock chaeto deep sand bed and put pods in several times with out getting much out of it. Eventually took it down and used the stuff for the refugium on my 125g. I did the pod tank cause I wasnt told when i bought my scooter dragonet that all they ate was pods and was not sure if i was gonna be able to get him onto frozen at the time so i figured it was worth a try.

My mandarin and scooter are both happy and eat frozen very well, even pellets too. It's been over a year that I've had them and they have grown so much and gotten fat too. lol

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

Interesting. I haven't had any good results with keeping them either...I'm already not impressed with the algagen stuff. The one bottle you could see pods in...the other 5 couldn't see anything. I just dumped them in anyway.

BUT, the other new additions...The periwinkle monti will wait until it's adjusted. Bad quality pics out of the phone today.
Banded serpent star

And the reason for all the pods...

AND what was asked for the FTS.


And yes, I'm aware of the "trap". But I'm planning on doing this up well. Hopefully atleast. If these pods didn't do well then I'll try somewhere else's.

OH, and I replaced my carbon with purigen, which also arrived today. Hopefully that and the GFO will do their thing on my tank.
