    hi there, i have a aptasia outbreak, I believe the copperbands are quite good in controlling these pests. If anyone has stock of this fish please drop me a PM

    Good luck, even if ou get one, won't be a guarantee that they will eat the Aiptasia and they are very finicky eaters.
    So in the end, you'll have a fish that will slowly die of starvation. Sorry for the harsh words. but it's true.:(

    Pls don't buy copperbands thinking they going to chomp up your aptasia, out of the 20 I've seen onlyb3 were nemisis for aptasia and these were 3 in extremely healthy thriving reefs. Other members might disagree but this was my personal observation.
