Never heard or seen of them before. Do you happen to know the scientific name? They sound very cool, I will be watching for the pictures!

Cool, sounds good. I think they are a great choice, they are colorful, and since they are Chromis, they are hardy.

Do some research on copperband. They are TOUGH fish to keep. Very difficult to get started feeding.
