Ill just throw this out there, my experience has been the opposite with a 6-line wrasse. It terrorized my firefish and flame wrasse and the whole tank was skittish. Caught him and took him to a lfs to trade and the whole tank was much better. That is just my experience with one and I know others have had good success. He did look very nice cruising around the rocks but his aggressiveness was just too much.

Why do you think you need the pods eaten? People go out and buy a "clean up crew" and you have a free one right there. No reason to kill them off. They are harmless scavengers.

There so many, all over the place. Thought I would need to keep them somewhat in check. No?

No, they are good to have in your tank.

Pod populations will rise and fall with available food. No need to keep them in check. You'll never be overrun with them.
