Pod depletion

I was wondering if anyone has an idea of how severe the depletion of my pods would be by a pair of Mandarine Gobies. I have 450lbs (or 500lbs..can remember which at the moment)..anyway..450 pounds of LR in my tank. 3-4 inch sand bed. It has been about a year or so since I took out the Orange spot Goby. The pods are showing up again at full strength...Surely with the amount of rock I have, a pod population should be able to sustain its self.

I can show you what I look like before we moved it. When we move, the corals sat in rubber maid tubs for 13 hours (due to the fault of the comp that moved it.) I lost about 400.00 worth of corals.

.....the tank in all its former glory!
