I know they eat aiptasia, but will they eat rock flower anemones? Babies or full grown?
Also, I know they are reef safe the majority of the time, but if anyone has any experience, please tell :)

They potentially could eat rock flower anemones. Aiptasia are anemones after all. There is at least a little bit of a gamble there. Lots of folks do keep copper band butterflies in reefs, but it is a risk.
 

How often do you "endorse" reef aquarium products?
