Copperbands and coral


New member
I know a copperband is a "with caution" fish for reefs. I'm just wondering for those with experience with them, what would you say the chance of it nipping at coral would be. I would be feeding twice a day. I know they can be difficult to get eating but I would really try and get one that is already eating. I have some Aiptasia I would like to get rid off before it spreads. I know it's not 100% they will eat it but I would like to give one a try. Just would like some opinions

Copperbands are hit and miss for eating aptasia, some will and some will ignore it. As long as they are qt'd properly I have had good luck with them adjusting. I even ketpt them in quarintine for a little longer just to let them relax. Once they are settled they did very well for me. They will decimate featherdusters at least everyone I have ever had did.
