    I should be receiving my package this Thursday/Friday, and had a question for you. I will be dumping in both bags of pods, and then dosing the 5ml per 10 gallons, so 15ml every other day. When I do this, should I turn off the return pump, or keep everything circulating as I usually do in my tank? I'm really looking forward to seeing and helping my pod population grow out in my tank, and want to make sure I do it right.

    Thanks!

    I always shut pump down and turn lights off. Half bag in tank and half in the refugium area. Then I wait like 10 mins and turn everything back on. Just to ensure the pods make it to the rocks.

    Hello, yes the pumps should be shut off to allow the pods time to settle in. Please follow the directions on the product label. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with and be sure to contact us at support@algaebarn.com for a quick response. Thanks!

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate how quickly you sent out a replacement order to me after my original order got lost, and arrived at my locations 3-4 days late. You sent out a replacement right away, and really helped me seed my 29 gallon cube.

    Thanks again, and I look forward to buying from you again in the future.

    It was also wild seeing my fish attack the live baby brine ship you shipped with my order....definitely a treat for them!

    You've definitely earned my business for all future pod orders!

    Marc
