They simply aren't out there. Im just saying I would never even consider putting one in my tank without it being able to eat naturally. Its the same reason I wouldn't go with a moorish unless I could spawn sponges everyday for him.

I agree good luck and at the person saying there not hard don't encourage the keeping of this species that is already over collected. They truly are meant to be left in the sea or to the extremly established tank.

Good advice here. Hard creatures to keep without an established tank with a lot of live rock. I have heard people say 100 pounds of rock per dragonet. Don't know how accurate that is, but in my experience, it's not far off.

Scraping pods off of the glass? I think you are mistaking Isopods with copepods. Copepods swim, and isopods are not on the menu for dragonets.

I just feed some frozen brine shrimp to my other fish, and my mandarin had a nibble on some. So I might have some luck. But I am aware that she might stop eating frozen food soon :/
