Well I am happy to see that today the Copper banded Butterfly is eating a little more, swimming a little more, and I actually saw him seek out food in the rocks...

Tomarrow I will mix some brine shirmp and blood worms together and see if i can get him to start eating brine shirmp..

Unfortunitly I did find a white spot on this tail fin, So i am suspecting Ich, My RO/DI system came today, So I will be doing some water changes in my 55g tank getting the Nitrate down to 0ppm, then I will move all my inverts over to the 55g tank, and begin treating the butterfly in the 29g with copper...

I have been mixing 50/50 Blood Worms and Brine shrimp over the last 3 days, The Copper Banded Butterfly will pick out all the blood worms, and leave all the brine shirmp (The the crabs and shrimp are happy to recieve on the bottom)

Is there something different I can do to try and get him to eat brine shrimp?

How long can he eat just blood worms and stay healthy/alive?

Thanks,

-TheChad

IMO bloodworms are much better for the fish than brine. Bloodworms are loaded with protein. Have you tried mysis, cyclopeeze or even flake?
