No I am not q'ting the fish. I know I should, but my lfs
holds them for me in a tank by themselves for two weeks before I take them home.
I also agree with everything that has been said, but it still stinks when you have done everything by the book, your water test good, and the fish still die. The juvenile blue seemed like the happiest fish ever and then came home one day and he was dead.
For those that have tried a copperband how long did yours last.
Mine was the first fish and lasted 6 weeks.
