Anyone else experience this with dragonets?

I have to dragonets, a mandarin, and a red scooter. Though I have copious amounts of copepods (haha puns ) in both the tank and the refugium, both of my dragonets seem more interested in the LRF Reef Frenzy frozen food that I feed. Anyone else have anything like this happen? (it also happened with my golden head sleeper sand sifting goby)

I had my mandarin start eating frozen mysis out of the water column when I fed the rest of the fish in the tank. It is pretty rare to get them to eat anything other than pods period. Even then, I'd never own another one with all the money I wasted on pods.

You can feed one mandarin an entire $22 bottle of pods in 5 minutes.. You have the fuge that's supporting their food needs. They go crazy for the special stuff you put in. Just like any fish they have food association and see the other fish eating. They live off of your pods though.
