    Keep in mind that not all copper banded butterflies will eat aiptasia. The one that I have in my tank won't touch them, but will eat anything meaty that you drop in, especially PE mysis.

    True about not all cbb eats aptaisia. However, most other butterflyfish do eat aptasia: chaetodon kleini, burgessi, lunula, ect. I am currently keeping a heniochus.

    True, a number of them will eat aiptasia, but not all of them are reef safe. C. lunula definitely isn't reef safe.

    Albany Aquarium? I’m so surprised that building hasn’t fallen down.

    Yeah the saltwater is bad there. :(
