I am sure your idea would work, I am just not sure that is the best solution if you are considered about the pods
. It took two months to get rid of mine, I pulled it out daily, but eventually won the battle. Lettuce nudibranch will eat it, it is their only food source from what I understand. So if you got some, you would need to be prepared to hand off the nudi's to someone else before they starved to death.
While fighting the battle, you might also want to cut back on feeding fish and reduce your lighting schedule to the bare minimum.
