Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The system is doing well. I am seeing growth everyday and my 2-part is getting used up quickly. Will need to look into a CArx soon.

Looking good. What are you feeding the Copperband?

Thank you. He eats flakes along with the other fish. I have had him for over two years now. At first he would only eat Aiptasia and tube worms for three months then I got him eating black worms and now it's flakes.

Beautiful tank! I noticed you have some nice tangs with your copperband. I am thinking of getting a copperband for my 180 to eat aiptasia. But I thought my tangs (2 yellows, 1 purple, 1 hippo) would tear it to shreds. Do you think I could introduce one into my tank with success?

Thank you. I would say depends on the aggression of the tangs you currently have. All of my tangs are pretty calm except for my Powder Blue. He is aggressive towards other fish. I had my Copperband before the Powder Blue so they get along well. If your tangs are aggressive then I probably wouldn't as Copperbands are hard to acclimate and eat.

They are beasts against aiptasia though. Mine eliminated probably near 500+ aiptasia within 3 days.

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
