You may have some right now since you added live rock and sand. Once the tank is cycled you can add pods and they will reproduce and live in the rocks.

I started seeing things pretty quickly, but it all depends on where you got the rock and sand, really. Best bet is to take a flashlight and look in when the tank is dark. A lot of the benthic organisms you'll see first are light shy.

Don't the pods usually come in the LR ? And other stuff?

Is there times that LR pretty much has nothing on it but the bacteria?

I bought it uncured

Sorry guys I'm a newby!!
