Training mandarin goby!

I just got a male mandarine goby into my 30g well established reef and i obviously want to train him to eat frozen mysis. My plan is to first get him to spot feed on live brine shrimp if i can get him to not hide as soon as i reach into the tank. Then ill slowly introduce garlic soaked frozen brine and start using less live brine until he is fully on frozen brine. Then i will use the same method to switch over to frozen mysis.
Should i be trying to boost copepod population or will he be more tempted to eat frozen if there are less copepods?
Please share any suggestions, advise, and experience you may have!

Not sure about the pods but have heard and seen good things about the feeding them via rigid airline tubing and a syringe.
