That seems like a lot to me... You can buy little cans of Zooplankton at most lfs that has much less in them. I am not sure if it would work the same though.

So the Zooplankon i've been feeding has pods in it? I haven't seen him eat anything yet. I got some entice and am adding that to the food.

It's not likely to be too many, since many aren't going to live that long. I'm concerned that I won't have ENOUGH to start a culture to fully populate a sump and tank LR. I want to get mine in before I add any fish so that they have a fighting chance. I have to ask around, too, to find out what the right number is, or if I should culture them separately.

Pods are zooplankton. Most people freeze them, then sell them. If you buy the zooplankton that are kept at room temperature, you have pods!

No, it has plankton in it.
As far as 1,000 pods/bottle, it does not seem like too much to me. there will be some natural loss as well. I think these would be more useful in starting or supplimenting a pod population rather then being used for food.

Zooplankton are pods. Jellyfish are a type of zooplankton too, but most fish food Zooplankton are made of pods and other very small zooplanktons.

Zooplankton is the name of the general group of small, current-borne or swimming animals, including larvae, copepods, etc.

Phytoplankton is the plant (algal) equivalent.

if it takes a hundred lbs of live rock to sustain a manderin, how many pods (on average) would be in 100 lbs of rock?

assume the rock is from a healthy system and the pods are flourishing

Sorry, I was refering to the difference between actualy living pods and their "off the self" counter part.
