As with a lot of species, it really depends on the individual fish. Most all copperbands will eat tube worms in short order but only some will nip at LPS, SPS or clams. I have had mine for over two years with no trouble...except for all the tube worms on my LR. More important with this fish is finding one that will accept prepared foods in a captive environment.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
