It's possible, yes. However they have a habit of sometimes deciding that they no longer want the prepared food. Mandarins very frequently starve to death, even those that were trained onto frozen food.

I did see a neat setup at one point where a person used a petri dish, some mesh, some rigid tubing, and a funnel to make a BBS time release feeder. It was a neat setup, I'll see if I can find it again.

Right. Anything is possible, but to play the odds with life?

I had a mandarin in my 55 reef for some time. I pumped 2000 pods into it monthly. On top of that, the mandarin began to eat frozen mysis out of the water column like the rest of the fish! This was quite contrary to training them to eat from a feeding station. Then it stopped eating mysis, which can happen more often than you'd think, and it starved after over a year.
Really cool fish, just something that should stay in the ocean.
