oh where oh where have my pods gone?

oh where oh where can they be?

I used to see tons and tons of pods EVERYWHERE in my tank but I never see them anymore, besides the clump of macro algea in my sump. I had a fairly big outbreak of cyano, but that has been taken care of via adition of macro algea and more live rock to the sump and a euroreef skimmer. However, my pods are nowehre to be seen. Basically I am waiting to get a mandarin but want to be sure he will survive.

current livestock -
pbt, strawberry basslet, 2 ocellaris clowns, bi-color bleeny

55 gal FOWLR
Euro-reef 5-2 skimmer, 29 gallon sump
3x penguin 1140 ph
2x65 10,000K and 2x65 03 Acintic
40lbs cc/30lbs argonite sand mixture
80lbs keys rock (www.liverocks.com awesome stuff)
25lbs fiji/tonga lr
10lbs lace base rock (now hapily live with lots of coraline growth)

Fish will prey on the pods in the display. The sump should give the pods a protected environement from predators where they will reproduce freely. However, if the sump is underneath the tank, most of the pods will be destroyed as they pass through the pump back to the main display.
