    Okay it comes in green, brown, and red. So what's the difference anyone know? My foxface won't eat the green but the tang loves it. Thought of trying something different but if it is just the color, he may still not eat it. He eats plenty of other stuff so he's quite fat, but seems his color...

    Before my rock cooking episode and tank rebuild I had millions of pods in my tank when I peeked in there late at nite. After all the rebuild I've yet to really see any at all. What's a good way to build back up your pod population?
