Possibly do a chaeto reactor away from the sump? I've always heard pros of having chaeto with pods so I'm interested in why not as a cultivator? Ease of collection?

i cannot because i cultivate pods so no lights
Are you saying you can’t run a fuge light because of the copepods? Why would that matter? I have never seen that as a problem, nor read that in any literature. We do know that many species of copepod will avoid well lit areas when not actively feeding but I would assume that having 100% darkness 24/7 would be counter productive.

Granted I haven’t done any specific research on this exact topic, I could always be wrong...

The significant differences in the light responses between hungry and fed animals indicate that light is a signal of food availability for these species. As it was shown earlier, hungry animals increase their positive reaction to light, which agrees with data on hungry and non-hungry Daphnia behavior (Stutzman, 2000). The hungry animals tend to respond strongly to light than more fed
