Does the size of the copperband matter as to whether they eat aiptasia? I have just put one in however a friend suggested he is too small to eat them 3" ish. He believes the collection areas may be different so they have not learned the trade. I was wondering what other peoples experiences were?
I am sure jason got me one a couple years back that was about 3" it soon cleared the aips, although they always seem to leave the really big ones which may need killing off with kalk paste

A good trick to get them going is to scrape one or two aipts off the glass then drop them in the tank in front of the copperband,they will often eat them as they drop in the tank.

Would love to cut back on frozen.
Tried that once and mine threatened me with (in a growling mafia-boss kind of voice) "Give me the mysis or the LPS get it" followed by (in a girly squeeky excited voice) "oooh look a little aiptasia - chomp -"

Lol. When we getting an update on your system chris??
Once I start putting corals back in. I ripped out all my sps bar one last month, they had simpy grown out and were choking the system up, tough decision but had to be done.
