Yes I would say that is defintitelf a minority case.

Im guessing though that in the future this may be more common to have happen.

Mandarins, and all dragonets for that matter, have specialized mouths and eyes designed almost specifically for the purpose of eating copepods and other small crustaceans. They can somehwat be expected to eat frozen but shoiuld have a great quantity before purchasing..if they eat frozen food later on they should still at least have a little to eat here and there. Having them beforehand will make sure that if they dont eat frozen they'll still have copepds there.
