Yes. But which is more important? Time or money?

Your tank is too small to sustain enough pods for one to survive. Even ones trained to eat frozen foods may change their minds in your tank and choose to only eat pods. Only way would be to grow your own pods or purchase large quantities but that would get expensive.

Beautiful fish though!

i dont fully agree with this. however i fully agree that they are EXTREMELY picky eaters and it takes either extreme luck or a ton of patience to get them to live a fat-bellied life in our tanks. i have one in my 125 and he was on the verge of dying but started to eat pellets (extremely lucky) so ive been giving him targeted feedings as often as possible to fatten him back up. if you still decide to attempt 1, id wait as long as possible, and even then, try to find one that eats pellets. granted its not a guarantee but it helps.
