Butterflys are dangerous to corals, they can pick at them at any time. There are a couple of them out there that do well, but for the most part, not good.
Not a Copperband though, just a Pearlscale Butterfly.

Finally.... I've seen the culprit in action. However it was during the day today while the lights were on. I was walking past and caught my powder blue tang biting at my pulsing Xenia. The cheeky sod him lol. I newit, he was acting so shady, he would give me that side/corner suspicious eye look lool. Still it's very interesting with all the views on the pearl-scale butterfly though, the thing is... He also may well be nipping, it's just that I haven't seen him......YET!!

Anyway I have now created a safer haven for my Xenia to continue it's journey back to it's original size lol, but I'm not really sure what I'm going to do when it's time for my Xenia to head back down into my deep sea once again.

Decisions decisions.
