No, they are all special feeders and eat copepods> In the Aq they can first be put in a QT tank and started off with live copepods and weaned off to Vitamin gut loaded brine and mysis. Once they learn to eat non live food then they may be put in an DT setup. You would still have to make sure they get enough to eat because they are slow feeders by nature.
You might want to give a "Scooter Blenny" a try. they eat live foods also but are a little more suited for the home AQ.

When you say nano what size are you refering to? They need at least acording to LA a thirty gallon tank. IMO it needs to be more. They need plenty of LR where pods can grow and thrive and even then it wont be enough and you`ll need to buy some pods and stock your tank.

Now, if you have a problem with a pod infestation, then a nice dragonet would help take care of that....just like peppermint shrimp and aiptasia
