Well when I was still getting mine acclimated I threw some towels over his cage and made sure he had enough water and left him like that in semi/total darkness for about 4 days. I mainly did that just because he was striking at the glass every time I'd come in the room but after I took the towels off and offered food the first night, I just left a f/t chick in the branches just before he came out for his night cycle. Came back two hours later and it was gone. To this day I've still never seen him eat. If he sees me at all before I put the food in there he won't eat that night. It's definately the most nervous snake I've ever had.

Other than that if nothing else works there's some water snakes and green snakes in the classifieds for cheap. Maybe pick one up and toss him in the cage with your mangrove and see what happens.
