Pod Chest

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 unit contains 40 individual serpentine chests, 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 blast 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.

Each unit has about 4 oz (120 grams) of PETG, and measures about 3" x 3" (75mm x 75mm). Available standard in translucent blue, and other colors via special request (minimum order quantity for special colors is four units).

Unit is easily flushed out with water from a turkey baster, or deep cleaned by soaking in vinegar. Deep cleaning is not needed, as the detritus is fed on by the amphipods.

Size: 3.14" x 3.14" x 1.5" (80mm x 80mm x 38mm)

Introductory price: $19
