The Pod Chest(tm) is a new addition to the POD world. It's a place where Amphipods and Copepods can safely congregate, throw parties and hang out, without having to worry about predators. Each chest contains 40 individual serpentine chambers, all connected to the central atrium. A total of about two feet of linear space, or about 35.2 square inches (227 cm^2) of space is provided for our little friends.
The central atrium serves another purpose though. Cover the hole with your thumb and move the chest to the display tank, then use a baster to squirt water in the central hole. All the ne'er-do-well slacker pods that are hanging around the chest will be blasted out in to the tank, to make tasty treats for your fish! Replace the chest in your sump, and let the new tenants move in.
Works best if you pre-load a little bit of pellet or flake food in the chest each time you return it to the sump. May be cleaned by flushing it with fresh water. Deep cleaning is easily done by submerging it in water with a cap full of bleach, but should not be needed. The more detritus, the more food for the pods.
Size: 3.14"x3.14" (80mmx80mm)
