    Does anyone have a healthy Copper Band to sell, as the one I got, lasted 04 days. I hate loosing stock, especially if I paid a lot for it and it came with whitespot...

    Ag no man Sean! You not serious!?!?!??!

    I wonder whether these CBBs should be stopped from being imported?

    BTW: Really sorry about the loss, man!

    Maybe they should be kept at the Lfs longer to ensure the Reefer get the clamitised ones....

    Damn Sean, he looked perfectly fine yesterday, I'm very surprised he died overnight.

    Or that - I agree - I think that this way (IF the LFS keeps them longer) the fish will then either most likely die AT the LFS (instead of in your tank), OR, you will receive a healthy, eating fish.

    In the case of option # 1, the LFS might learn not to import these anymore - IF he finds that the CBBs just keep on dying off.......

    In the case of option # 2, we as reefkeepers will receive far more healthy CBB's more often - and they will stop dying in our tanks at home....

    Sean speak to Liaquat. I have an order for an eating one when he gets...will cost a bit more but at least you know it won't die in your tank. Where did you get your last one from?
