    click there, that will take you to the sponsors forums. Do you know much about copperbands? have you researched before wanting to get one?

    ouch dropzone...that must have set you back a bit.

    They are in general a shy species as far as I know and not too easy to keep. Give it some meaty foods. Also watch as it might nip (probably will) at clams, LPS Zoa's etc

    not cheap to say the least , BUT im the kinda guy if i like i gotta have hahaha one way or the other

    thansk for that
    it actually likes nori funny enough and doesnt seem too keen on the frozen foods i been giving it , but ive only had him in tank for about 2 days now , so ill hold thumbs

    yeah - i been warned to keep an eye on the lps and the clam especially

    what an inconvenience having to chose huh :whistling:

    dropzone not to put the breaks on enthusiasm too mcuh but spend some time doing research into each and every fish you buy before you purchase it. If you dont plan yopur stocking you end up gettinga fsih that is unsuited and problomatic for whatever reason (difficult to feed, white spot, aggression, not reef safe etc etc) and that leads to hassels down the line.

    maybe spend some time on wet web media, live aquaria.com or bluezooaquatics (google the sites) and read up a little about the fish you think you like. you'll learn alot and save yourself lots of heartache later on.

    i must say the majestioc is a wonderful fish alothough ive never kept one myself :)
