46 bowfront with a 20 long sump. First 6k I ordered to heavily seed my tank for my mandarin over the first 2 months and the last 4k have been add ons with other orders. Got my mandarin 2 months after cycling by the way and 6 months later he's still very happy which wouldn't have been possible without introducing such a large pod population lol

Just for the record reefs2go had great pods. I have ordered few times and have been very happy. Try to put them in after lights out. Will have a much better survival rate.

Agreed on reefs2go's pods. It is all I've been happy with in terms of them. My next order of pods will be a pretty large one...maybe up in the 10k area. The 2k won't last too long imo...hopefully a month...?

Yep like I told Adam Sept 13th and he's got like a $12k shipment from Thailand I believe which will be available and only customs touch it so no big wholesaler or anything keeping all the prize pieces. When I was there he actually had two pieces from the phillipines that had tiny lobos on them which aren't suppose to be harvested but at the time they must have been nearly microscopic. I mean even by the time I seen them they were like the size of a dime lol

I think its by appointment only. He works out of his basement. I contacted him for a used reactor on CL not knowing it was him until I started to speak to him on the phone.

Well, my own laziness will save me and my pocketbook here. My 55 is so full and I've spent so much money on the tank this month.
