What is the detriment of losing pod populations in a tank? I have been advised to possibly remove my sixline wrasse as it will decimate my pod population and thus increase likelyhood of algae and problems down the line.

Would like everyone else's opinion on this??

Basically what do people thing of this when they have fish like mandarins and sixline wrasses??

i beleive that six line wrasses are excellent fish to have.according to some reading ive done previously,they are excellent to keep in SPS tanks as they eat flatworms.should you have a DSB in sump,remember the pods are constantly reproducing.
i highly doubt that they can totally finish of all pods in a tank.ive seen tanks that are 150l and have six line wrasses in it and at night the pods and goggas are all over the place

I have shit loads of pods, my six-line and copperband have a long way to go before they would be able to wipe them out.

When you lift up a piece of LR, check how many goggas underneath.
