Who will eat pods - too many of them

There are too many copepods or amphepods in my 10 gal mostly soft corals tank. They are crawling all over some corals and I had found partially eaten small coral. The only fish in the tank - percula clown - doesn't keep their population under control. Another motile habitants are astrea snails, nothing else.

Corals with mouthes large enough are some yellow polyps and one hairy mushroom, all other are close to filter-feeding kind.

What animal should I buy to eat pods? I had read that mandarin dragonet eats them, but there are no sandbed in the tank, recommended for it. Anything else?

the 10 would be way to small for the mandarin even though there is a lot of pods in about a week or less there wqould be none

Thanks! They were IDed as possibly Munnids(sp?) isopods, supposedly harmless, following excess of nutrients in the tank. My cleaner wrasse from another tank eliminated all of them (that were visible) in two days.
