Amphipods, Copepods, and Mysis shrimp are all common reef "bugs". They serve as a natural food source for a number of fish and inverts. As the tank becomes more established, so do the pod communities. You may consider a dragonette to keep the pod population in check, but take heed that most dragonettes will not readily take prepared foods. If the pod populations dwindle, you may find your dragonette starving itself to death. If you do choose to add one, ask the LFS clerk to feed the fish. see if the fish is willing to eat frozen foods. Your should be regularly feeding frozen brine and mysis to your other fish anyways.
