They will eat them, but this is a difficult fish that needs a big quiet reef to live in. Not very reef safe IMO as well.

I have lots of Aptasia in my sump & overflows but zero in my DT. I have several peppermint shrimp that keep it maintained perfectly.

He never said it was a reef tank, and they can be in a reef tank they just have to be watched some may bother coral some may not. But yes they are difficult

True enough, didn't catch it wasn't a reef.

I just made the mistake getting a copperband for some aptasia years ago, and it didn't work out long term at all.
