Adding copepods

Hi,
Iím just wondering if I add some live copepods to my tank, will they all get eaten up instantly? Iíve got a fire goby and golden sleeper head and was just wondering if the pods would reproduce even with them around.
I donít have a Refugium yet

The fire goby would eat them. The sleeper goby might if it's a small fish but if it's an adult, it will probably ignore them. If you want the copepods to breed, you need to put them in a planted tank on their own so they don't get eaten. A refugium can be used on a marine tank for this purpose.
