It certainly wouldn't hurt anything. I keep several pepermint shrimp in my sump/fuge, they reproduce regularly and feed the tank.

Same here, I keep a pair of pep shrimps in each of mine as well as a couple of turbos and herimts. Keeps them nice and clean and doesn't affect my pods what so ever.

Will hungry peps not eat pods?

Feed the sump, and you'll have no worries.

I have a pistol shrimp in mine and snails. I have had the shrimp for almost 2.5 years now and when I went bare bottom I wanted to keep it, so I have a display refugium also with a dsb.

I'm sure there's plenty that makes its way to the fuge to not need supplemental feeding, but if you're worried about it a couple pinches of fish food each week should suffice.

Agreed. Chances are, enough food will make it to the fuge anyway, but I will toss or squirt a bit of food in the fuge once in a while.

Same food I feed the display.
