Copperband so just say was probably the least problematic fish which I really wasn't expecting he was in the shop for a month or so gettin fatter and fatter. I found my regal tang was a temperamental little bugger. He ended up with white spot so fished him out. Had a little QT tank set up and fed him loads and had him in a month or just under then back in he went. Been up nearly 9 months now and the anemone has come Bak to life lookin amazing now and it's split. But one get one free

Hey carol. Must agree with carol, a friend of mine had a copperband from same supplier and I'm not sure whether it was the fact of there was a regal and yellow tank in his already not so big tank and they seemed to out compete it for food and chase it round a lot. It never survived. Whether mine was off to a better start as I added him first to let the temperamental thing settle in and feed well before any bigger fish went in. I'm not sure but the guy from the shop did say it's less likely be stressed and unhappy if he gets in there first

I saw a lovely copper band in angel aquatics but the fella in the shop swayed me away from it saying they can be a pain to feed.I'm guessing they can be then.you have a lovely tank.

Thanks hixy. To be fair everyone's tanks I've been lookin at r really nice and helps give ideas for scapes and just general placement of things. It's coming along now I would hate to think how much money I have put into it but my theory was start with good gear and wen the inevitable happens and u go bigger most my gear with do it. I hope. I did go bananas and blocked the back of the garage up and made a full on 'man cave' for a 3m tank but decided see how I get on first. The pipework still all in for a sump in the garage! It's took nearly two years save and doing it so I better enjoy it apologies for the essay
