if you have a mandarin and a scooter your pod population will deplete fairly rapidly , it's not hard to raise pods in a separate tank , I keep them along with shrimp all you need is a good amount of macro's for them to breed along with a cheap light to maintain your macro growth and a 2 small power head to tumble the macro's I can accumulate around 2000 pods a week, and my 20g long divided in 2 is slam packed all the time , all i do is take a small net and scoop out a bunch every week and add to the 2 main tanks , as for the shrimp I get about 200 a week , it's a good way to save on foods
with your stock you don't need the shrimp as they probably wouldn't eat them
, I started with 2000 pods now I would say I have at-least 20 to 30 thousand
you can actually see them with out straining to see them since theres so many,

My dotty keeps attacking the diamond goby, his fins are all chewed up and he doesn't look good at all. What is the best thing I can do to stop him? Will changing my scape help?

I have an opportunity to upgrade to a 75 gallon tank. Would that be better for them to be in a larger tank?

It certainly wouldnt hurt to have the larger tank, more space and most likely less aggression

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1. Bigger tanks leave more room for escapes and individual territory.

it's always good to have a larger tank to reduce the aggression, but the question is whether it's a good idea for an upgrade for the sake of one fish financially. if you're well-off, then by all means be my guest. if otherwise, i would just return or rehome the fish and make sure you get something not as aggressive. there's really nothing you can do to a limited size tank with a fish that's known to be an aggressor even though it's labeled as "semi-aggressive". you can easily swap it out for a flasher wrasse or firefish or royal gramma while maintaining the lively color in the tank.

Well I've been looking to upgrade to a larger tank anyways, now just seems like a good time to go ahead and do it.
