    They are Iffy with corals. Rob Mougy had an alternative to them, where they look very similar but are more hardy and less munchy.

    Paul - Are you referring to the conversation at the meeting? Rob was talking about an alternate for the copper band butterfly.

    I had one in my frag tank for about a year and it never touched a coral. Sold him to a friend and it started eating his acans imediately. He sold it to another that banished it to a sump.

    If you end up needing to get rid of it, I've got a FOWLER he can go to.

    I may need to, I am getting a bta on Wednesday next week and don't want it touching it. I think they eat aptaisa so not sure if it will touch the bta.

    I have one currently and it doesn't seem to be touching my corals. I had a bad aptasia problem in my 34 gallon. Put the butterfly in and 2 days later I can't see any. This is the second one I have had and both mow down aptasia. I guess you have to weight the side effects with what you want/need in my case.

    Neither bothered annenomie.

    Just let me know. I just noticed a few aiptasia in my tank, if they eat it, that's a bonus.
