    Hi everyone,
    I have not been on here in a while.

    I have a bit of a problem with aptasia at the moment and was wandering if anyone has a copper banded butterfly i can buy or borrow to help me sort out my problem.

    Thanks in advance

    Chris

    How much aiptasia have you got? What Corals do you have in the tank? Why not try cut the numbers down with AiptasiaX, Joes Juice or Kalk mix?

    Copperband are very funny when it comes to feeding and eating aiptasia. Some of them eat aiptasia and some dont. I would rather try another way before buying a copperband. Also make 100% sure the copperband is eating and healthy.

    Agree with you Deon, CBB as well as peppermint shrimps can be very hit and miss

    I have quite a lot now and they busy getting to some of my corals now.
    I have mostly softies, and one piece of montipora at the moment.
    i have been trying some things and injecting it like lemon juice and calcium hydroxide and found this to be hit and miss as well. half the time the aptasia comes back strong as ever.

    I haven't tried kalk yet tho.
