it's not impossible, but it sure is unlikely if it's not eating them already.

It is hard to get them to anything but live food. Even if u get them to they are likely to revert back to live. Even if someone tells u they had a sucess story with prepared foods its highly unlikely. And then ask them how long they lived for and if its less then 2yrs is it really a success story?

Ok well I'll do my best to try and breed lots of brine shrimp and find copepods somewhere.

Yeh, don't worry about it. I am aware that the live bottle copepods will not last long. But I am willing to give it a shot

That one was prb tank breed and while that increases the chance it will stay on prepared foods but by no means guarentee that it wont just stop eating them.
