How big is your tank? is it aged? A goby can eat 100 copepods in a day. You can try to wean them to frozen, I've had pretty good luck with that but you have to have live foods until you get the on frozen.

+1 for training them to eat frozen food. They are like pod vacuum cleaners and will deplete your tank's population faster than an 80's slasher film killer. Unless your tank is huge and establish you are basically betting you will train it to eat frozen foods before it starves to death. Be careful, good luck and find a good source of backup pods.
