It is possible to train them on to frozen food and/or pellets. You will have to Google or ask or search for the methodology. This may not be what you want to hear but what you may need to do is rehome or culture pods in a separate tank

I have seen him eat frozen Mysis Shrimp (which I broadcast every 4-5 days)

That really doesn't help as mandis don't have regular digestive systems like other fish, they need a constant source of food as they have no real stomach which is why they eat thousands of pods a day

You should talk to Carey on here. She had one and the commitment was huge.

I've always found that they adapt very quick to different foods ,in my opinion I believe it's just old stories being passed on down the line where from people couldn't look after them ,mine takes a variety of foods including flake and pellets I hardly ever by pods, but I do believe if you're going to get one it's best to place them in a established tank with plenty of live Rock.
