Well you could buy them, but my wrasses do work on my population. They clean house which is why I added such a large Fuge. They can clear the tank and most of the population pretty quick. Also mandarins usually eat only pods and so that will drastically affect your population as well.

I've heard if people having a "safe" place for their population to grow in their tank, but I've never seen it. With a refugium, you dump a bottle in and wham bam, you have a great source of pods. It might take them a week to really explode but they will. Plus the pods I buy are 20 a bottle. That could add up fast.!

Yeah mine were tiger pods and I paid 14 for the bottle. I was told I only needed to add them about 4 times a year
