Pods making it up to display tank from fuge

I have a 90g upstairs w/a fuge in the basement (about a 9' rise), water is being pumped up via a Mag 18. In the fuge I can see tons of pods, and mysis shrimp. The fuge is connected at the top to a center tank, slighly lower, that contains the return pump. I can see the pods occasionally in the return tank.

My question is this - will pods survive the trip through the pump up to the display tank? I definately see some things swimming around in the display tank occasionally, mainly pods. Don't knwo if I've seen any mysis shrimp..

Yes they will make it, some will not
You can transfer them if you want to try and suck them out with a turkey baster.

Yep was thinking about doing that, was just wondering if any would make it back up. Seems like it would be a turbulent ride!

They will be taking the ride of their life.......... Swapping Lr from the tank to the fuge is another way to transfer pods....
