thnx for compliments everyone. i spraypainted the back and bottom black so they match. there's more color in the tank, just don't know how to use the camera yet. i wasn't into bb's before but thought i'd try it since i was battling cyano real bad. ever since going bb, no cyano, no algae issue, just magfloating the glass every couple of days. maintenance is a breeze with bb.

Raphael. they are not really a newbe fish. They should be fed live black worms, small pieces of fresh clam, mysis, plankton etc. They get about 5" long but they stay stunted in a tank and may grow to 4" depending on how large the tank is. You can keep them in a 50 gallon tank but of course bigger is better. If the tank was just set up I would wait a year or so.
They were always my favorite fish and I have been keeping them for over 30 years. Make sure it is eating in the store, a lot of them are caught with cyanide and do not survive long.
Paul
Here's mine

As Paul & I once talked about, my 2yr. old copperband had a liking for my crocea clams. But he,s such a lovable friend, I sold all four of my clams and kept him.

He has not bothered anything else yet and my new 75g,is designed with him in mind, corals and all. He does get a supermarket "live clam" {frozen}, daily and cleans 'em out shiney.

I have had a bunch of them and so far none of them nipped anything that I could tell. I have a clam which this one ignores. I also only have LPS and one sps so I can't comment on those.
Reefnewbe, I took a picture of your twin avitar and this long nose butterfly in Bora Bora. Longnoses are just about the same as copperbands in temperment and diet.
Paul

By the way, her name is Clemintine.

Paul, Bora Bora must have been great. I'm going on my first scuba trip in less then a month. Only in the keys though.

stlpvosrt4, another tank that has plants in the display ... looks great. What type of algae do you have in there? I cant realy tell from the picture, I think I see some halimeda.

Konadog, pretty cool being thread of the month. When I first started this thread I didnt really like soft corals but after seeing everyones tanks I'm hooked.

reefnewbie54321, thanks for the comments. Yes, it is halimeda. It grows so fast that I have to prune it once a month. You can tell from this picture that when I forgot to trim the halimeda my GSP actually grew around it. I actually like how it turned out though.


Here is a close up of my Anthelia that is now a foot in a diameter.

Sorry, I have not replied. I have an 80 gallon tank. Will they go with false percs, cleaner shrimp and a royal gramma?
