Ive gotten my scooter to eat everything. Took him about 2 weeks before i seen him start to take mysis. He takes blender mush and brine as well. Getting them extremely small helps in training them to accept prepared food. Atleast thats always how i buy known picky eaters.

Good luck

If they have live rock in there tanks then they have copepods. However just because they have the fish does not mean they are eating FYI. Hope you get lucky

How did you train the little guy? I bought copepods for the tank I figure I'll do that once a month or so.

Just began letting some chunks of food sit around him on the sand bed with flow turned off. At first he didnt pay any attention to it but within a few weeks he was swimming nearly to the surface at a chance to grab a few mysis or a chunk if blender mush.

I would place to food around him with a turkey baster. After about a week of this he showed slight interest approaching the food. Then he began nipping and finally eating at about 3 weeks.

Pretty much how i got my lawnmower blennie to eat prepared too. Also the blender mush i make contains lots of different foods.

My scooter took about a month to train onto prepared foods. I used a turkey baster to target feed and shut the flow off in the tank so he could get at the food. Very delicate eater scooters.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
