Is there such thing as too many copopods?

Have copopods crawling from top to bottom of my walls in a 75 gallon and in the refugium...this isn't harmful while I wait to find a unique mandarin right? I ordered a red mandarin but he arrived deceased so I am on the lookout for something different that eats the pods....

Not really dragonettes are the apex predator of pods lol don't forget though scooters are actually dragonettes too not blennies so have you considered a red scooter?

I only have ordered the red mandarin and he arrived last week dead...so...I haven't really looked around at all since then but I just want to find something different...mandarins are cool but every tank has one so I want a little uniqueness

If you have a low flow tank and is very peaceful you could do pipefish which are another great pod hunter

Probably too much flow for them...I got 3 power heads for the reef tank so I will stick with dragonets

There are several wrasse species that eat pods. Mine picks the tank so clean I can't have a mandarin.
