The Copperband Butterflyfish is known in the hobby as a miracle worker on helping rid Aiptaisia from aquariums. Sadly, the Copperband Butterflyfish is not one of the hardier Butterflyfish and has a poor record of survival in captivity. Some will acclimate to captivity within a few days and will begin eating normally and yet others may refuse to eat or will only accept live foods.
