At least 50g. Here is a profile on them. Lando (an advisor on the forums) has had great success with his and I'm sure will be along to offer some great advice.

this is a difficult fish to keep due to it's deliberate eating habbits. When sourcing out a copperband see if you can get one from Australia asoppossed to the Indio. They tend to be hardier and have beeter collection/transport methods. I have found LOTS of mature LR to be the key in keeping these fish, as well as a healthy pod population. they do eat small crustations. Mine likes cyclop-eeze as well.
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
