    So I am going to be picking up a Copperband Butterfly at my LFS this weekend for my 120 gallon reef tank. It is eating really well and has been there for a few weeks. It's also about 5 inches. The only problem with it is it has a bit of Lymphocystis on its pectoral fins. Should I worry about...

    Ok guys. I created a new thread because I cant see where I can post them on the original thread once it's been posted. These photos are for Marine Monkey. All of the fish you see here are fish that were pulled out of the fishing nets and just tossed to the side because there is no money in those...

    So, this is a pretty random question, and it just came across my mind. But food wise, would these 3 work together? I have kept the copperband and mandarin together in a reef before, and there were no problems. But I am curious as to wether this would be too much of a battle over copepods and...

Since all of my friends couldn't get their ich infected butterflyfish to survive. However, mine still...

    I have been doing saltwater since I was 16 (10 years!) and I have never had to "fight" a disease before, not even ick. This long into the game I finally decided to give my favorite fish a try so I picked up a copperband butterfly which was eating in the store. The fish had what looked to be a...

    The title says it all. I watched him eat at the store but when we got home, he doesn't look like he has touched anything. It has been about 36 hours since I got him home and acclimated. From time to time he looks like he is stressed in the way that he is swimming but for the most part nothing...

    So, as some of you may know I have been battling aiptasia for a while now since my I was so awesome I could cut it off a piece of live rock moment about two years ago. I seem to have some special breed of that crap. None of the paste even stuns it for more than an hour. I officially killed...

    So some time ago i posted a thread with ideas from fellow TRTers on how to ween my copperband onto frozen foods. After exhausting all food options and feeding every sea creature under the sea, he finally starting just eating some mysid soaked in garlic. I think the key to this (in my particular...

    I bought a very healthy Copperband from a local reef store yesterday. He ate in front of me (live brine) which aided in my purchase decision. I took him home happily and drip acclimated him until he was ready to take the plunge. I introduced him later in the evening and he immediately started...
