I have been sucessful so far with both my mandarin and scooter. I've got them both eating frozen food but it took about a month of time EACH to get them eating it. Luckily I had enough pods
in my tank during the weaning or else they both would have starved.
The mandarin is an eating machine, I can;t imagine having two of them competing for food as they are the most delicate dainty eaters. lol
AS I';ve read though getting them to eat frozen and KEEPING them eating it are not a definite as they can go back to pods
at any time. I also bought an ORA mandarin which i think was helpful in getting her eating frozen. I spend about 10 minutes or more each feeding watching them to make sure they are eating, plus I shut the flow down as they are not very aggressive grabbing food. They are slow and methodical.
