    Default Getting pods from fuge to tank?

    I have a HOB fuge. What would be the best way for me to get the pods from the fuge to the tank? Should I just stir up the fuge and let em enter naturally via the flow? Or siphon them out using a turkey baster?

    You could make two smaller mesh type rubble rock holders that no fish can get into stick one in your fuge to collect pods, after a week or two transfer it to somewhere in the back of your dt, and let it hangoit in there while pods move from there into your rocks, and put the other one and stick it into your fuge to populate while the first one is in the dt. Every few weeks switch them around!

    They're usually transferred to the tank by way of the return flow. I have over twenty fish and I still see pods . I would dare say your tank has more pods then your aware of , being it's been over a year up and running and growing well.

    If it ain't broke don't try to fix it!! LOL
