One of my favorite fish stores back in San Antonio: Aquarium Designs, specialized in mandarin care, and converting them to frozen foods, and I remember they got one to eat small flakes once, It was unbelievable to see. They would not sell you any mandarin until he had been eating well for a matter of weeks. You had to get yourself on the waiting list for one. They are very good at what they do.

125g cichlid - 14g biocube reef - 6g planted Edge - 20g L goldfish/African Clawed Frog

i DO NOT suggest this fish to begginers or small tank owners, period.

but for a method of training:

you can take clear tubing and inject live food down the tube to the manderin. eventually use a mixture then eventually all prepared food. it will associate the tube with food and most likely would work. these guys still need a larger tank for their well being to have live pods to hunt for as that is their natural behavior.
