I like these kind of fish, but they are the pickiest eaters ever and mine starved itself to death after a month.

Ok question... What are copepods exactly and what do they do/what are they good for?

Look for a detrivore kit which will contain several species of copepods and amphipods.
InlandAquatics, IPSF, and possibly eBay are good places to find one.

I agree, although sometimes it does not always work either. Mandarins and blennys will eventually devour their entire stock of cope pod need sanctuary algae tank IMO.
