Algae Barn?

Recommended Posts

Looking at adding a wrasse in the next few weeks, was thinking of doing an order from algae barn to get the tank seeded with pods.  Has anyone got any experience with their product to share?

 

Considering the 5280 combo pack.

 

Thanks!

If you ask around there are often people who are throwing out Chaeto which tends to be full of pods. That's the way I seeded my tank--and I have pods galore.

I used algaebarn to seed my tank with pods for my dragonet and it seemed to work well.  I also recently purchased some pods from Pod your reef and that was easy too.

I like Algaebarn. They do have issues meeting demand at times, but I haven't had any problems lately. I also use their OceanMagik phytoplankton, which really seems to keep my pod population up. And my corals seem to really like it.

I literally just seeded my small HOB Aquafuge with their 5280 pack and some chaeto I snagged while at Cuttlefish. It’s insane the amount that are now thriving in that little fuge.

Another thing I like about them is they’ve switched to environmentally friendly packaging or at least my package was. (No longer using styrofoam but a cotton alternative)

Algebarn I have found to be very good. Never an issue. I dont currently have their pod packages in but do have these..

I had a problem trying to order from their website but I called them and did the order of the phone and in an hour or so I got an email that it was shipped.

I ordered the pods and they worked out really well.  I like their products.

I’ve ordered from them a few times now and their packaging is fantastic. It comes well insulated and is labeled for quick delivery.
