Does anyone else get excited when copod life is in abundance?

I did a tank stirrup ní water change yesterday. Removed two damsels that were heavy nippers so I could switch my tank over to more docile ones. I had a heavy copod population in one corner of my tank, but now they have free reign. They are covering my glass and itís kinda awesome! Should I get a target copod predator? Or just let them roam and be snacks for tobi puffers (when I get them) and dragonet? Click image for larger version

I gave freshwater copeopods in my newly set up 20 gallon. I love them, free fish food.

Usually they will be consumed without a large safe place to reproduce. Don't add an animal that only eats copepods because you have some. A dragonette will just take months to starve with nothing to eat. These animals eat hundreds if not thousands in 1 day and it takes a very large system to produce enough food for them to survive.
