Mandarin Dragonet and copepods

I have an ORA dragonet that eats frozen mysis, brine, and pellet foods. I feed him twice a day and he is a happy little fatty. Ive had him going on 3 months now. My question is this: What is the best product or food for these fish as far as nutrition? I do have plenty of pods for him to snack on and I also decided to raise my own in order to stock my other tank for possibly a female (when ORA produces some more as I heard they don't have any at the moment). While he is fat and healthy I want to be sure I am giving him the best that I can. Thx.

In addition, are Tisbe pods the pods they like to eat? I know there are a few out there.

Keep him eating mysis if you can. I've had mine giving for what feels like forever now. Only eats pods. I refresh my tank every couple months with pods from reefs2go when they have bogo deals on 1k pods. 2k pods in one sitting rules.
