Bio Cube 29 fuge and copapod question

I was thinking of getting the intank bio cube fuge that fits next to the media basket. I was just going to put some chaetomorpha and a light. Is it even worth it?

Also what the heck are copapods exactly? Is it something you add to your tank or fuge? Or do they naturally occur?

I'm a huge proponent for cheato and the nitrate control it provides.
Copepods and amphipods are tiny shrimp/krill looking things that are good to have and feed many fishes.

OK, I might get one then. Should I buy some copapods off of Ebay? My tank is two weeks old. 16 pounds of live rock, 10 pounds of dry rock, 10 pounds of live sand and 15 regular.

No need. They will populate from the LR. Only buy them if you have a Mandarin that needs them to eat exclusively.
