You can add pods but they would be eaten just as fast you add them. Dragonettes and wrasses hunt all day. The wrasse is a pod eating machine. I would suggest establishing a good refugium before adding the dragonette.

Check this site out for getting more pods. You could always wait and let your existing ones reproduce but this is a way to help them out a little bit. Yes your sixline eats pods too which is all the more reason why you'll need a good supply of pods. A refugium helps out a lot when it comes to pods supply. It keeps the preditors out and gives them a place to reproduce with out getting depleted in your tank. Its a really good idea to get one. Is it a must, no, but it will help you out a bunch! HTH

Thanks for the info guys.. I need to build a better sump with a refugium.. right now I have a rubbermaid tub.

I might be able to talk my wife into letting me buy a 55 gallon tank as a sump and make a refugium section.

What exactly is needed to get a refugium going.. besides sand and slower flow.

I definately think a refuium is the way to go. Check out this link about The Mandarin Diner-
Open for business daily! It is a pretty awesome idea but I don't think it should replace a fuge.
