    Hi dallasg! It nips at small polyps now and again yes, but not reason for selling no, just do



    n't fancy it that much. Would rather 'make space' for something I'd really like.

    I read on another forum that you might have to train them to eat the stuff if they are still infants...

    Another way is to feed them the aiptaisa in a quarantine tank and get them used to it...them move them into the DT.

    Im not at home in the day to see what he's up to but my aptaisias are definitely not taking over. I could also have considered a copperband maybe? I hear they also eat aptaisia? And much better looking, haha

    There is unfortunatly no guarantee that either will eat aiptasia. I have had several copperbands and NEVER seen any copperband eat aiptasia. They are very finicky eaters so yes i would not wait on them to eat aiptasia. I quess fish do have personalities.

    Hi Niroshni, how are you doing? You started up a tank again? Nothing else at the moment to sell unfortunately. Have got a millipora frag that I will want to swop or sell soon, but haven't yet.

    I'm glad, you must send pics when you can. Nennie is doing very well, has grown even larger. Would love to see it split but don't know if that will happen.
