Snails Vs Pods

My 55 has been up and running for a little over 4 months now with all together literally 6-8 snails that are doing a pretty good job considering. My pod population is HUGE at the moment. I am however starting to get some patches of algae on my rocks. I was wondering if I add more snails to take care of this problem what affect will it have on my pods?

Snails or pods dont really control algea. Water flow and filteration and feeding habits and water source would be more in mind.

Correct, nutrient levels feed algae, but snails certainly eat algae so it isnt so visible. In the end its nutrient control but i would definitely get more snails and get different species.
