Yep, great advice above!

Carey's really likes pods, he even eats out of her hand too!

I got my copperband from an LFS that trains them onto prepared and takes really really good care of theirs. They dont' even sell them until they are eating frozen so I had a head start with mine. The lfs had him eating by hand even which posed a problem when I first introduced him tot he tank. lol It did take mine a few days to settle in though so be prepared. He was very shy and not very aggressive when it was feeding time in the beginning but after about a week or so he got into the groove.

I still feed mine out of a turkey baster, he seems to really love pulling the shrimp out of it and it gives me the chance to make sure he is eating.

Good luck Kio, take care of him and watch him closely in the beginning and you should be good.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Hey Koi,
No offense, but the tank looks really bare to support a Copperband. They really do best in established reefs.

Send a message via AIM to Jlsardina
Is he on mysis already? Or do you have an established pod population?

Put him in, fed while I dropped it in. He hid for about a min, after I took pic, he started eating the mysis. I did pods just incase. I already had some from my old tank, just added more.

None taken. If I see he's not well, I'll transfer him to the 150g.
