Right now I've got a separate tank set up for growing a pod population because I'm about to treat for red bugs and it will wipe out all my copepods. After I treat the main tank I plan on transferring the contents of the pod tank to a refugium that I am in process of setting up that is connected to the main tank. Pod reproduction seems to be very slow and I was wondering if there is anywhere in Canada that sells live pods to boost the population or if anyone can spare any from their already established refugiums? Please let me know. Thanks.

The treatment for red bugs isn't quite as bad as everyone thinks. I believe it only killed about 20-25% of my pod population and they rebounded really fast. I think OA sells pods in a bottle, Tigger Pods or something like that. Try getting some chaeto off someone, its usually full of pods :biggrin:
