Long story made short, this is a 2 years old tank, which recently had 2 major crashes mostly because of me; Now is on the way to recover and be awesome (I hope)
Crash 1 - beginning of 2018 - really unknown reason, but all fishes (except a chromis) were wiped out due to an ich outbreak
Crash 2 - May 2018 - measured PO4 of 0.08-0.16 range, so I increased the NOPOX; no drop in PO4 level; Started using Seachem Phosguard and test again. Same 0.08-0.16 PO4; Increased the quantity of Phosguard, same test; Increased the quantity further, same test result until ALL my acros start loosing tissue on base. In a matter of days all were dead; Other SPS & LPS I have became really pale in same time. After lot of thinking I was able to find out that the PO4 test expired few months ago - any water I tested (new made saltwater, RODI water, tap water - all had PO4 at same value);Ordered a new test just to find out that my PO4 is absolute zero and probably overdose of Phosguard shocked all my corals;
Now I am in process of dosing PO4 & NO3 and hopefully to save what can be saved

Feeding copperband is a 3 day regime:
Day 1 - frozen mysis
Day 2 - frozen brine + spirulina
Day 3 - frozen mussels (from grocery store and chopped by myself) - actually when feed those he really take the pieces out of my hand like a puppy; And eat a lot - is capable of making such a round belly that barely breath  <3. Sometimes I soak those pieces in Aquaforest FishV as vitamin supplement

Tried other fish frozen foods (krill, fish eggs, plankton, etc) no reaction to them; 

those are his favourites
