BEEN MEANING TO ASK ABOUT THIS:

In the fuge section in a sump, once pods start living happily, how do they enter the display tank? Won't they get killed if they need to travel through the return pump??

nope. Bigger Amphipods might more so than the smaller copepods. But their survivability is quite high. and those that die, become instant food.

That's actually pretty impressive. I thought people essentially harvested them on filter
pads or something and then shook the pads off in the DT to rejuvenate the supply. Any good way to kick start a population? Or should I just play the waiting game?

I use the bogo offer on pods fro reefs2go. Keeps my mandarin good and fat. I get worried and restock on them every 3-4 months, but I don't think it is needed so far with my tank.

I sucked up some amphipods from my chaeto and blew them into the return pipe (external pump) and for the most part they survived. None were chewed up, but 1 didn't move before it got ate. most of the rest moved before they got ate, but I did this at lunch and the fish were hungry. It was just a test.

Do you consistently do this, or every so often?

Put most in the fuge and some in the tank. I do it once every 3 months.
