  1. General Reef Discussion
    So... My tank has been up and running for about 11 months now. I used dry rock to set the tank up and have not added any other rock than dry rock that was cured / cooked for 2 months with a skimmer on it. Needless to say there are no pods of any kind in the tank. I think this is a contributing...

    Hi all, I recently added a mandarin to my 220g tank. I have a varriety of sps and lps in the tank that I also started feeding live phyto to. Until I got the mandarin and started with the phyto, I ran a uv sterilzer on my tank. The water was crystal, 0 algae, but also 0 pods to be seen. Since...

    Hey all! I currently have a 40 gal. breeder that pretty lightly stocked, ~5 nassarius snails, a few astreas, 1 chalk bass, and 1 angry ocellaris clown. I've been working to improve my tank over the past few months including adding a 20g sump/fuge, seeding pods, etc. My hopes are to start with...

    Does anyone have any Ideas on how I could boost my pod population without a refugium? Was I thinking about adding macro algae to my display tank? I currently have a cleaner wrasse and a copper band butterfly fish.

I was at my lfs and they had a pair of pipefish that I'm considering buying. And I wasn't too worried about my pod population because will hatch baby...

    Surely someone has come across the white sacs dangling from the underside of a LR? Not freaked out, just curious. Tank is about six months old and this is the first time I've seen them, so I'm not sure how long they've been there.

    Hey there, Just recently I discovered what I first thought to be snail babies, in my display tank. After studying them for quite some time, I noticed what looked like legs on the little guys. They are smaller than copepods, triangular in shape (similar to a snail), moves faster than a snail...

    So, my tank is fairly new. I've got a couple clowns, three damsels, and two firefish. Had a little spike of ammonia when I added the firefish, but its settled now, and now I'm trying to establish my refugium. So far, I've got a few pieces of live rock in there and from what I can see, some...

    Hi all, im trying to find a LFS who carries Tsibe and/or Tigriopus or equivalent pods in Sacramento area, and im falling short. Is there any Sac locals out there who can point me in the right direction? Ive tried to get them from Algaebarn.com , but both shipments have arrived DOA. Maybe someone...

    Hey everyone. So I'm back and just set up a 75 gallon tank. I purchased apx 80lbs of LR from an established tank about 2 weeks ago. My tank has been cycling and as of last night I was at: Ammonia-0 , Nitrites- 0 , Nitrates- btw 5-10. I also experienced a decent brush of brown algae while cycling...

    Just seeded an above display refugium and i noticed a very large critter. After doing a bit of research i figured that it is an isopod but I am having problems determining if it is a bad one or not. Anyone know?
  16. General Reef Discussion
    So I have a seperate tank next to my DT filled with tons of pods. I usually take one nice rock out of the DT and place it in the refugium for about a week. This week before I put the rock back in the DT i noticed tons of hydroids floating around the refugium and attached to the glass. Is my...

    I have a 180g reef that is 3mos old. I want to seed my huge LR of dead-branching coral with pods. Here is what I plan to do, and need everyone's input on if it's the correct way: > start with a 3-5gal clear container that I can pickup at Walmart or wherever. one that has a screwtop lid > drill...

    As the title states. Where to buy pods? I have a new tank that is home to a red spotted scooter blenney for about a month. I would have waited until tank was more established but he came into my local Petco on the same day they found ich in the system. The aquatics manager knew that I wanted a...

    So as the title suggests, I appear to be having some issues with my current amphipod population in my tank (30 gallon). Now I've done quite a bit of research about zoa-eating amphipods, and though it appears especially rare, I was able to find a few instances where others have had similar...
  20. General Reef Discussion
    Okay! First of all I dont know where to post questions or anything so im doing it here. I have a few basic questions. Do I have to introduce pods via bottle into my tank to have them or do they just show up? I bought "live rock" from my local fish store but the rock itself was just sitting in a...
