Yep, I see your dilemma. Have you tried to get her off pods
? I got an ORA tank raised one and am slowly getting her back on prepared foods. She's still eating whatever pods
she can find but at least she's eating other foods now too. I turn off the flow in the tank and use a turkey baster to shoot her frozen cyclops and brine shrimp and mysis. She is just starting to try the mysis.
You have alot fo
rock, could use some more in fact to be honest. The mroe rocks the better pod population. The refugium is supposed to be a safe place for them to start out and then they migrate to the main tank. I have 200lbs of LR
in my 125g and literally have pods
everywhere. At night it's kinda scary to see them all over the place. lol
But sounds like you have a good base for starting a refugium. You can also add the pods
to the main tank after lights out so they have a chance to start to populate the live rock before being eaten.
This is a good product to seed a refugium
