I don't think you can that many. Your fish will eat them. They reproduce like crazy!
The only problem I see with getting something to eat them like for example a mandarin is what do you do when it plows through all of them?
I've read that they can go through over 2,000 a day!!
I had one and after about 3 months it died. It probably went through all the pods
even after I added more from reefs2go. Now when I do water changes I don't see any pods
on the filter media like I did in the beginning. Just something to think about.
If you have a sump then is say your good to go for getting something to eat them because the sump is probably LOADED with them also and there gonna reproduce in there also and make there way into the DT.
Hope that made sense and wasn't too drawn out lol. I haven't had my coffee yet.
